In Leah's Wake is the heart-breaking story of a family torn apart by the teen daughter's behaviour. I have to admit it sounds horribly familiar to me, hence why I wanted to read it. I'm still apologising to my mother for all the heartache I caused her. *_*
Having said that, I can't wait to read a similar story from the other side's perspective. No doubt it will make me want to die with regret. Insight is a wonderful thing.
The Tylers have a perfect life - beautiful home, established careers, two sweet and talented daughters. Their eldest, Leah, is on track for a prestigious scholarship. Their youngest, Justine, is more responsible than seems possible for a 12 year-old and just wants her big sister's approval. With Leah nearing graduation and Justine a seemingly together kid, the parents are set to enjoy a peaceful life... Until Leah meets Todd, a high school dropout and roadie for a rock band.
As Leah's parents fight to save their daughter from a world of drugs, sex, and wild parties, their divided approach drives their daughter out of their home and a wedge in their marriage, leaving Justine to observe her sister's rebellion from the shadows of their fragmented family.
Do you have goosebumps yet?
