It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small…forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend, her life starts to spiral out of control.Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is.
Fragile Line is a book that was completely not what I expected! I'm glad that I tried it out despite the lack of reviews on Goodreads because it proved to be worth my time and I was able to finish reading it in just one sitting.
Ellie is losing time. She keeps on forgetting certain memories, and she gets black outs from time to time. As it happens more and more, Ellie has a hard time pretending that it doesn't exist, and she goes on a journey to find out what is happening to her, and that's where she meets Gwen.
Fragile Line started out really promising. I kept turning and turning the pages because I just had to know what was happening to Ellie. It was exciting, riveting, gripping, and I just couldn't turn the pages fast enough! Learning about what was happening to Ellie was an exciting journey, and I love how the author chopped this book into parts that made the book better.
Once I knew what happened to Ellie though, I was kind of let down because there was such a great build-up surrounding Ellie's black-outs that I couldn't believe what was happening to her was just that. But I have to commend the author for the great build-up though, and also for being able to execute the mystery in a good manner.
What I liked about this novel was that even though it is a mystery book, there's more to it than just the mystery. There's family, romance, friendship, school and other elements as well that made the story more interesting. I definitely recommend people to try this one. I admit, it may not be for everyone's taste, but I promise you that it's worth a shot.
