Book Review (Kris)
The Girl Who Wouldn't Die by Marianne Jones was a quick read for me.  The character Linda suffered horrific daily abuse by her stepfather.  This ignited her spiral down to a destructive path.  I was very surprised at the number of her suicide attempts.  Her lifestyle mirrors many people I know.  The sad truth is adult role models often abuse the authority they have over kids.  Linda, and many other are left with internal wounds.  Thankfully hope prevails.  The lesson, never give up on someone.  They eventually may see the light.  I give this book three stare.  Good read.  I would have enjoyed the story line expanded.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
