Hey Jessica- Thank you for the free ARC from Netgalley in exchange of my honest review. I’ll give you 4 out of 5 birds for The Girl in the Pink Shoes. Holy heavy! Did I know how intense of a book I was getting into, no… And it wasn’t until I read the reviews that I realized this is part of your childhood. First of all I am so so sorry for the pain you have lived through. As far as the book itself, the storyline kept me invested and I needed to know what happened in the end. Is this book for everyone? Absolutely not. It has a major trigger warning. It’s a sad reality that as parents we have to protect our children from so much and that there are some parents who aren’t willing to protect their own children.
