Then there is her online world. Her laptop takes her away from her flat existence…and she feels safe. Until she starts getting the strange e-mails.
But why is Leah hiding? What is the mysterious event that transpired fourteen years earlier that changed everything for her? And why is someone now sending her threatening missives? Why is her mother, who lives in Watford, ashamed of her?
We meet characters from her past, when the story carries us back there, like her friend Imogen and her boyfriend Corey, and Adam, who is Leah’s boyfriend. They are like a little posse, doing everything together. And Adam is the leader. Why is he obsessed with one of their teachers?
Our story goes back and forth through time, piecing out the answers to these questions, a little bit at a time, until we think we have it figured out. And then we realize that there is so much more to the story.
As I read The Girl with No Past, with its nail-biting suspense, I was glued to the pages, afraid to set the book down. With each new person that Leah slowly lets into her life, I am afraid for her. For who can she trust? I will not forget this story, which I am giving 5 stars.
