I want to start off this review by thanking Tiny Fox Press for sending me Lifeline for review. This review will be spoiler free so read on with no fear.
I went into this book thinking that I wouldn’t get much out of this book mainly because I am more of a fantasy reader than a contemporary reader. But, I ended up really enjoying this book. Lifeline is the story of Eli who is a High School lacrosse team captain. One night at a party Eli ends up overdosing and is then sent to a teen rehab facility. This follows his journey to start his recovery.
Like I said I really enjoyed this book. You can tell the effort that went into the research of this book. I can’t speak for someone who has had this experience but I feel that it was well researched. What I really loved about this book is the fact that Eli wasn’t cured by the end of the book. Eli knows that it is going to be a hard long road to stay sober and he even struggles with that throughout the book. What I also enjoyed about Lifeline is that things may not be as they seem. I also really liked that it didn’t shy away from anything regarding too what addiction is and how it affects people and the temptations that are out there. Also, for most of the book we believe something to be true but by the end, we learn that there is more to the story. I really enjoyed the overall message of Lifeline and how it was presented.
The only thing I would say is that I could have done without the love interest. I think it could have gotten the message across without it. That was all of the negative that I had I think this was a good read and if you want to read about someone’s journey in rehab I will recommend this book.
That is all the non-spoiler thoughts I have. Honestly, I feel like I could go on and on but I don’t want to spoil you so I won’t. All I will say is…that plot twist! Didn’t see that one coming. Comment down below if you would read Lifeline.
Until next time book nerds,
