"Above" by Isla Morley is a Page Turner! (UPDATED)

Above by Isla Morley is a book that is about a scary time and a girl, Blythe, who hangs on to hope to help her survive a terrible situation she is in.  She is kidnapped at age 16 by a man she trusted, held prisoner in a silo underground for 15 years!   Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, they do!  This book really had me feeling sorry for Blythe and brought up emotions of sadness, anger, disgust and finally relief.  It has a twist I did not expect at all and really caught me by surprise.  It is written from the girl’s perspective so the reader only gets to see what the girl sees, feels and thinks.   If you like novels about survival in tough situations with surprises along the way, I recommend this one.  This is a page turner that kept me reading because I had no clue what would happen next and wanted to see how it was going to end.  It reminded me a little of In the After.

Above by Isla Morley is about a young teen girl named Blythe.  She is taken captive and held by a man in a silo for 15 years.  What happens in that silo makes for very interesting reading.  When she finally escapes, she finds that lots of things have changed.  This is a real page turner.  The first part of the book was my favorite but the second part, although not as good, kept me reading to find out how it will all turn out.  Worth reading for sure!
