One thought on “Interrupted: Life Beyond Words, by Rachel Coker

  1. The best thing in this book was the writing style. Everything, the characters, the setting, and the characters feelings were described in great detail but were still interesting. When Allie’s mother died the author made it really sad but did not drag it on as long as most books so it was not as depressing. the book had a fast pace and sometimes skipped a couple years like she would be fourteen then all of a sudden she would be eighteen and then nineteen and then she would be engaged so it was hard to keep track of how old she was. There was character developement near the end but when a few years were skipped Allie still acted like she did when she fourteen at the beginning of the book, so even though her age was changing she wasn’t really changing. I liked the end and there weren’t any cliff hangers. It was a good book, but it is not in my top three.
