Motherless by Erin Healy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Marina has spent her whole life, mothering her little brother Dylan, after her mother's presumed suicide seventeen years ago. After all, they have to call it a suicide. They have no body and she had a past of mental illness. That's all she's known. Untill one day her father gets into a car accident, that whisks him away from their world. Now Marina is trying to figure out how she and her brother will survive. They are in danger of losing their house on top of dealing without both parents. As she searches for the answers, secrets begin to be revealed. Dark, hideous secrets. And the answer to why her mother's body was never found. These secrets cast a dark shadow on her father, Garrett.
Garrett, being stuck between the two worlds, wishes he had the courage to tell his kids the truth so they wouldn't find out this way. Being too late, and not knowing wether he's alive or dead, Garrett watches as the secrets flow out. Like the waves on the beach where the lies began.
I really liked this book. It didn't turn out the way I thought it would. At times, I was confused at what was happening, but just as quickly as I was confused the answers came to me. I think it was an amazing book and a must read for suspense lovers.
