Nine by Rachelle Dekker {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 


 



Zoe Johnson spent most of her life living in the shadows, never drawing attention to herself, never investing in people or places. But when a wide-eyed, bedraggled teenager with no memory walks into the diner where Zoe works, everything changes. Now, against her better judgment, Zoe, who has been trying to outrun her own painful memories of the past, finds herself attempting to help a girl who doesn't seem to have any past at all. The girl knows only one thing: she must reach a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, hundreds of miles away, before the government agents who are searching for her catch up to them.

Award-winning author Rachelle Dekker throws you into the middle of the action and keeps the pressure on in this page-turning story that, asks Are we who the world says we are--or can we change our story and be something more?

If I were to be 100% honest, Rachelle Dekker is one of those authors for me who is really hit and miss. On the one hand, she is an absolutely fantastic writer. She creates unique stories and characters that are unlike any others, and as such I really want to love her books. On the other hand, I often struggle to really get into them... as much as I want to love them, I just don't always. Still, I am always willing to continue giving them a chance. And sometimes, I find ones that I really quite enjoy- The Girl Behind the Red Rope was one of those...and Nine sounded like another good one too. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. While I have not quite finished this book at the time of posting, I am happy with what I have read so far. It's a fast paced read that will keep you turning pages to find out what happens next. Whether you're already a Rachelle Dekker fan, or like me are someone who wants to give her a chance, this is certainly one worth checking out.
