Tin Lily By Joann Swanson
Anything can change in the blink of an eye. In the time it takes you to take in a breath or exhale the one you've been holding, your whole life, your whole world can be knocked off kilter.
That's what happens to Lily, one minute everything is fine, good even and the next she's seeing blood splatter on the walls, hearing screaming and running from the man who just murdered her mother, the man who, just minutes ago she called 'Dad'.
Lily survived that day but she still lives in fear. Fear that she's the reason her mother died, fear that her father will hurt everyone she loves and then come for her, fear that she's crazy for seeing him everywhere and hearing his voice inside her head.
Now living with her aunt, Lily finds it hard to open up, to let anyone get close. She sees visions on a daily basis, her father threatening her, blaming her, haunting her. If Lily can't trust herself how is she suppose to trust others?
"Tin Lily" was such a beautiful, heartbreaking story. I was unsure when I first started it, thinking it was meant for a younger audience but I feel like this book is so captivating and mesmerizing that it doesn't matter your age. Whether you're in middle school, highschool or your second year of retirement I promise you that you will fall in love with this book.
I know I did and I cannot wait to get my hands on anything else that Joann writes.
