The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald is a book that truly starts with a bang. I appreciate how well the author was able to weave the story back and forth between Olivia and her mom, Abi in alternating chapters. The story is very descriptive and packed with feeling; I cried so many times due to how the author was able to portray the raw emotions of the characters. I enjoyed the roller coaster ride and being on the journey with Olivia and Abi and watching them transform themselves and become stronger individuals.
The storyline could be ripped from today's headlines, and even though the premise was a bit common, the writing and way the story unfolded was unique and kept me guessing on what happened to Olivia. I don't want to spoil the story, but the ending was gut-wrenching and beautiful at the same time. This book was hard to put down.
I really liked this author's writing style and hope to read more of her books.
