#BookTour: A Heart in a Body in the World by @debcaletti #Giveaway @JeanBookNerd

About the Book:

When everything has been taken from you, what else is there to do but run?

So that’s what Annabelle does—she runs from Seattle to Washington, DC, through mountain passes and suburban landscapes, from long lonely roads to college towns. She’s not ready to think about the why yet, just the how—muscles burning, heart pumping, feet pounding the earth. But no matter how hard she tries, she can’t outrun the tragedy from the past year, or the person—The Taker—that haunts her.

Followed by Grandpa Ed in his RV and backed by her brother and two friends (her self-appointed publicity team), Annabelle becomes a reluctant activist as people connect her journey to the trauma from her past. Her cross-country run gains media attention and she is cheered on as she crosses state borders, and is even thrown a block party and given gifts. The support would be nice, if Annabelle could escape the guilt and the shame from what happened back home. They say it isn’t her fault, but she can’t feel the truth of that.

Through welcome and unwelcome distractions, she just keeps running, to the destination that awaits her. There, she’ll finally face what lies behind her—the miles and love and loss…and what is to come.

My Review: This book was really good it did sit heavy with all the running but that was ok. It didn't take away from the book's story at all and man this one was full of all the feels.  If you want a book with a heartbreaking and beautiful story this is the one you should be looking at!  This story was so good its a story about survival, guilt, romance, hope, and change.  

I really loved Belle and how the author makes sure that we understand everything that is going through her head as the story unfolds.  This really made you care about her as a character. 

This story of healing and forgiveness will stay with you far after the story ends.  I couldn't put it down. 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes! All the feels!
