‘I can help you save your sister. But I need something from you …’
Sisters Bree and Alissa Walker share a special bond. Neglected by their parents, they have always looked out for one another. But one day, sixteen-year-old Alissa goes missing. When Bree discovers her green backpack with all her belongings, abandoned on the steps of their run-down trailer, she knows that something bad has happened …
Then she receives a chilling text message. Someone has Alissa. But Bree will have to give up something very precious in exchange.
Desperate to save Alissa, Bree looks at everyone close to their family. She’s sure that Alissa’s best friend is keeping something back about her little sister and a boy at school, and why has their estranged uncle, who they’ve not seen in years, been hanging around again?
It soon becomes clear that the person behind the message knows a lot about the dark truths within the Walker family and will go to any lengths to get revenge. And as the search for Alissa continues, Bree discovers something about her brother Tyler that she wishes she hadn’t, a dangerous secret, which is also the key to bringing her little sister back home …
A gripping and addictive thriller about family secrets and lies and the lengths people will go to protect them. Perfect for fans of Teresa Driscoll and Louise Jensen.
This story is very much about family bonds. More so the ones between siblings.
I had to feel sorry for Bree. She comes from a broken home where her dad is nowhere to be seen and her mother is working all hours just to put a roof over their head and food on the table. Even Bree has had to put a side any hopes and dreams while she works to help pay the bills and pretty much is bringing up her younger teenage sister. My heart really went out to her.
As soon as the story begins, trouble isn’t far behind. Not long after arriving home, Bree ends up on a mission to find her missing sister and we are taken on a thrilling and relentless journey into finding out the why and who. I have to mention Liz who is Alissa’s friend. I loved her character and her determination to help Bree regardless of Bree not wanting it. The thought of her on her little moped just made me smile.
I Know You is a suspenseful read that had me racing through the pages. The author had me feeling lots of emotions and I loved the journey I was taken on with revelations and twists and turns a plenty. A gripping and entertaining read.
