I might have screamed when I finished reading this book. I am not much of a jumping time line reader. This usually throws me of my reading speed as I have to keep adjusting. In this book it worked out very well though, filling in back story when needed. It was easy to connect with Emily. Though all her decisions are explained I did find it difficult at some points to agree with them. Still the loneliness and her will to survive and get answers jumped of the pages and caught me by the throat. I would have loved to have known more about Cameron. His story was interesting too.
This book just kept me reading needing to know how it would end.
