RELEASE PATRICK NESS

April 30, 2017

Release Patrick Ness Hardback Published by Walker Books Amazon £9.09

SOMETIMES THE END OF YOUR WORLD IS THE START OF YOUR LIFE

It’s Saturday, it’s summer and, although he doesn’t know it yet, everything in Adam Thorn’s life is going to fall apart. But maybe, just maybe, he’ll find freedom from the release.

Time is running out though, because way across town, a ghost has risen from the lake. Searching yearning, she leaves a trail of destruction in her wake.

MY REVIEW

Eighteen year old Adam Thorn blonde, tall and handsome. He was a keeper of secrets. His childhood had been filled with talk of blessings. He helped his dad set up the church. Preachers houses have to look a certain way.  Adam’s parents wondered if he might be gay. A girl Katherine Van Leuwen was killed. She had been murdered last week at the same lake where the get-together was planned. Katherine went to Adam’s school, but Adam didn’t know her. The girl’s killer was her much older boyfriend and had been caught. He had confessed, and was awaiting for sentencing. This story is packed with love, heartbreak confrontation and with themes about church.
