REVIEW: The Book of Essie by Meghan Maclein Weir, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
The Book of Essie had me completely hooked from the first chapter. A tale of betrayal, compromise, a tangled web of lies, and familial tension, I never felt bored. Narrated by 3 very different and dynamic characters, the story took unexpected turns each time I felt like I was figuring things out. I enjoyed the depth of each character as we learned more of their story, and found myself rooting for all the right people to find happiness in the end. I wanted to crawl into the book and smack a few people, shake a few by their shoulders, and hug the rest.
A quick read with lots of discussion topics, The Book of Essie was everything I hoped it to be.
