You Don’t Know Me But I Know You

A Novel by Rebecca Barrow 

Storyline: There’s a box in the back of Audrey’s closet that she rarely thinks about. Inside is a letter, seventeen years old, from a mother she’s never met, handed to her by the woman she’s called Mom her whole life. Being adopted, though, is just one piece in the puzzle of Audrey’s life – the picture painstakingly put together by Audrey herself, full of all the people and pursuits that make her who she is. But when Audrey realizes that she’s pregnant, she feels something– a tightly sealed box in the closet corners of her heart –crack open, spilling her dormant fears and unanswered questions all over the life she loves. Almost two decades ago, a girl in Audrey’s situation made a choice, one that started Audrey’s entire story. Now Audrey is paralyzed by her own what-ifs and terrified by the distance she feels growing between her and her best friend Rose. Down every possible path is a different unfamiliar version of her life, and as she weighs the options in her mind, she starts to wonder –what does it even mean to be Audrey Spencer?

I don’t know what it was.. but something about this book felt so familiar, maybe it was almost such a standard story that it just felt like I’ve heard it before, but I’m not sure. I can’t quite put my finger on that feeling…. anyways… The writing style was so smooth and easy to read. It was definitely a quicker read because it was quite a short book. I liked the modern feel of this book it just felt so real. I felt so invested in this story. I needed to know how it was going to end, it felt more like these characters were my friends and I wanted to help them and know what they were going to do. This book deals with a few touchy subjects that people always seem to argue about, Which was interesting to read. I loved this book to start out, I thought it was clever and funny and fun.. but personally I didn’t like the ending at all. The ending made the whole book seem to pointless and bland. I’m on the fence about this book. I don’t know if I would recommend it, but I don’t think I wouldn’t either? I’m torn. 

I rate this book
