I picked this up as a freebie on my Kindle ages ago and stored it away in my Freebies folder meaning to read it some day …. So glad I did, for this is an extraordinary book, even more so when you realise it is the author’s debut novel.
In Search of Adam isn’t an easy read – it deals with child abuse, paedophilia, mental health issues and much more. However, the characters are incredibly strong and though this is (presumably) fictional, you just know that all over the country/world there are kids going through exactly the same experiences. There were scenes in this book that truly shocked me and it left me feeling upset and deeply unsettled.
If you’re looking for something light and fluffy this definitely isn’t for you – but if you’re prepared to jolted back to reality with a sickening thud give this a go.
