#YASRC15 #Review #Giveaway of Bear Witness by Melissa Clark

Three years after witnessing the kidnapping of her best friend, Robin, Paige Bellen is expected to continue on with life as usual. Now, with her closest friend out of the country, a messy relationship with Robin’s boyfriend, and a family that handles her with kid gloves, Paige isn’t sure if she’ll ever be able to move forward in life. Bear Witness explores the aftermath of a crime in a small town, and what it means when tragedy colors the experience of being a young adult.

This one I lost and well found again haha.  It had fallen behind my table where I put all the mail. But that ended up not being a bad thing.  I read this in about an hour or so.  Its a very quick read. 

So this one is little but has a big story!  Paige is still dealing with the after math of her friend being kidnapped.  And I have to say that the author did a wonderful job in the few amount of pages that we were given.  Paige is such a great character and it was very sad to read what she was going through. 

I could really see this as a Lifetime movie!  The book is told in difference of time.  Which I thought worked out very well.  It starts off in present day and then the alternating chapters move back a year each.  It was a great way to tell this story and it made you connect not only with Paige but also with Robin.

This was such a heart wrenching book and it should be read by all.
