Here’s my 3* review of The Girl With No Past.
‘The Girl With No Past tells the story of Leah, a girl with a dark secret in her past that is having a huge impact on her life. She is a loner, she has no friends and emerses herself in books, both at work and at home.
The chapters are all told my Leah, some while she is at high school with friends, a boyfriend and clearly a bright future ahead. The majority of the chapters are telling us about Leah’s life now, a time where she is consumed by guilt but is slowly starting to realise that she wants more from her life.
The Girl With No Past is an easy read, you don’t need to think about it, although I did want to know what had happened in the past and who was seeking revenge on Leah now.
The story lacked oomph, Leah was not very likeable and I never really cared all that much about what had happened. It was fairly predictable too.
But saying that I quite enjoyed reading it, it isn’t a book that I will remember in a few months time, but I’m certainly not sorry that I read it and would read more from the author.
I received a copy of The Girl With No Past from the publisher, Bookouture, from Netgalley in return for an honest review.’
