The Word Game - Steena Holmes

5 Stars!  #TheWordGame  Lake Union Pub  @steenaholmes

Wow, this is a very hard review to write. Nothing whatsoever against the author, just the subject matter that she chose to write about, plus how it affects me personally.

For me, this book was very well written. The subject matter was tastefully handled and I think that all teens and preteens should read this. There are a lot of little girls out there, even very smart little girls, who have this same thing happen. They can grow up for several years never thinking that there is nothing wrong with what is happening. It all depends on how the molester plays the game and Eddie was doing a mighty fine job. What a sleazeball.

Kudos to the author for a great book that, again, I think every teen should read. If not for themselves, there could be someone around them that is facing this very same problem. I love the conversation had by Keera and Lyla at the end. It was so innocent and yet, so grown up.

Thanks Lake Union and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. While the book was hard and personal for me to read, I found it to be very good and comforting.
