4 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
A story about the timeless struggle between mothers and their teen daughters with a razor-sharp 21st century twist. This heart-wrenching, harrowing debut novel for fans of Big Little Lies (Liane Moriarty) and Reconstructing Amelia (Kimberly McCreight) will make you question what's needed to keep your children from harm. Phoebe's mother, Isabel, is precariously balancing her career and her family. Hard-working and caring, worried but supportive, all Isabel wants, in a world of bullies and temptations, is to keep her daughter Phoebe safe. With her busy schedule, though, she fails to recognize another mother's mounting fury and the danger Phoebe faces by flirting with a mysterious boy on Facebook. A cyber-bullying episode aimed at Phoebe pushes her to the edge with horrific consequences. In her search for justice, Isabel, a DC lawyer, sets out to find the culprit behind this cruel incident. Saving Phoebe Murrow, set amidst the complicated web of adolescent relationships, tells a story of miscommunication and malice, drugs and Facebook, prejudice and revenge.

This novel that has recently won the 2018 National Indie Excellence Award for Contemporary Novel tells an incredible story of a mother struggling between doing what she feels right or being a good mother to her daughter. While focusing on the relationships between mothers and daughters, author Herta Feely also touches on the impact social media now has on society and how dangerous it can truly be, especially when in the wrong hands.

I loved how complex all of the characters were and how each of them had strong motivation behind their actions. The very end, however, felt a little rushed.

I've never been big on using an #eReader of any kind, but because of NetGalley I've been doing a lot of reading on my computer lately. #SeasonsReadings16
