You take it for granted. Waking up. Going to school, talking to your friends. Watching a show on television or reading a book or going out to lunch.
You take for granted going to sleep at night, getting up the next day, and remembering everything that happened to you before you closed your eyes.
You live and you remember.
Me, I live and I forget.
But now—now I am remembering.
For all of her seventeen years, Molly feels like she's missed bits and pieces of her life. Now, she's figuring out why. Now, she's remembering her own secrets. And in doing so, Molly uncovers the separate life she seems to have led…and the love that she can't let go.
The Half Life of Molly Pierce is a suspenseful, evocative psychological mystery about uncovering the secrets of our pasts, facing the unknowns of our futures, and accepting our whole selves.
This was a really fantastic book to read! I enjoyed it so much, it was really great and entertaining, and I loved the way that the story played out! It wasn't an action book, but a book on the mind! And yeah, I guess this week I'm reading a lot of books with various different head conditions.
This was a short book, but what was going on, it fit the length of the book, and yeah, I really enjoyed that! I enjoyed getting the memories that are the reason that Molly has this half life. Because yeah, I read the ending pretty early on, so I'd know what was going on!
That Molly can't be told what's up with her, because they've tried, and it didn't work, but that all of her immediate family knows about it, not fun for her! And after what happened to Lyle (which just felt off, for some reason, but it hurt Molly and Sayer. It just felt a bit out of place for some reason!) well, that was pretty much the starting point for the memories to start coming!
I could feel for Molly, she was in a pretty tight spot, and having faked along with the memory loss, though her family knew about what was happening, and then going back further and further, things started to make more and more sense!
This was a really great book, it ended in a really great place, sad in bits, but really good!
