DEAD TO YOU

Author:  Lisa McMann
Genre:  YA Fiction, Standalone
Published:  2012
Personal Rating:  3.25/5 (just okay +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Aaron Tveit
Yearly Count:  75



At the age of 7, Ethan was abducted from his family home.  At the age of 16, Ethan returns to his family home, but has a difficult time with the transition.  

I listened to this on an airplane and while it kept me somewhat entertained, I thought it was a little on the boring side.  I appreciated the authenticity of everybody's feelings towards Ethan's return, and I was curious as to where the story was going and what the ending would be.  However, it turned out to not be a surprise, and I would have liked to have known more of Ethan's thoughts and/or what happened next.

  2. The premise sounds fascinating - too bad it wasn't executed well.
