Will Turn You Inside Out Emotionally
An exceptional debut novel, THE DROWNING GAME is an incredibly visceral story not for the emotionally faint-hearted. I engaged so closely with the young narrator, Petty, that reading was difficult. Kudos to the author on that, because she made me feel as if I lived the events. Whenever Petty howled, I wanted to howl also. When she yearned for freedom and plotted escape, so did I. Days later, I still can’t shake the emotions elicited by this novel.
