Don't Look for Me by Wendy Walker
Interesting Page Turner
This is one of the better books that I have read this year. I have read The Night Before by Wendy Walker which I loved and this is no different. I can for sure get behind the obsession that is Don’t Look for Me. I actually received an arc of this book when it was first published and for some reason never got around to downloading it. My apologies. So, when I saw it at Barnes and Noble on my last trip I knew I had to have it. The cover really draws you in. Now let us talk about the book.
Don’t Look for Me is a book about a mother who goes missing and her fierce daughter who is determined to find her. Nicole will find her mother regardless of all the evidence leads to the fact that her mother does not want to be found. The main theme in the book is child-parent bonding and the strong love of a mother who fights to survive. It addresses loss, grief, and guilt. If those are your triggers please give yourself time to heal before you pick this one up but it is for sure with the time.
It is well-written and character-driven. The story is told from two different points of view, Nicole the daughter and Molly the mother. When a family experiences a traumatic loss, each family member griefs differently and this was addressed in the book gently. It was also the main inner drive between Nicole and Molly. This is known to the reader because it was very well described and beautifully depicted in the writing. It’s a fast-paced read that will keep you turning every page just to find out what happened to Molly. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending. I hope you get to meet Alice, a character I loved! You might not understand her in the end but you will love her.
