The Lucky Ones, Liz Lawson
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (Out 4.7.20 Thank you to the tagged publisher & NetGalley for the advance copy in exchange for an honest review.)
This book completely blew me away. I’m not sure I have the words to adequately review it, but I’ll try. The Lucky Ones is raw and real and if I could give it a hundred stars, I would. Literally every single star.
As I read, I felt like I was there with May and Zach—that’s how amazing this book was. I couldn’t put it down and I’m fairly certain I need a where are they now. I’d also like to thank Liz Lawson for the little My So-Called Life Easter Egg.
The last few pages were a blur as I cried my eyes out, but the author’s note gutted me.
My son will start kindergarten in 2020. I dread that day. I dread the day he learns about Columbine and Sandy Hook and Parkland and Santa Fe and every other school, church, night club, concert, etc.
I dread the day I have to explain to him that after we’ve lost so many lives to gun violence, we’ve done nothing to protect him or his little sister. Or the hundreds of thousands of children impacted by gun violence each year. #enoughisenough
