Blurb

A saga de um jovem de espírito inquieto que, na busca de seu caminho, encontra-se diante de um novo "eu" desprovido de valores e de conduta questionável. Um novo "eu" descontrolado e perturbado que é submetido a um tratamento psiquiátrico duvidoso lhe revelando a pior e mais torturante fase da sua vida.

Prefácio

Antes de começar a escrever essa introdução, reli grande parte dos e-mails que trocamos - eu e o autor - sobre todas as revisões que fizemos, as alterações acertadas, os comentários detalhados; a fluidez, o tom, o peso. Senti-me apreensiva em alguns desses e-mails, relendo o que eu havia colocado, a emoção, a indignação, a revolta, as reações sobre certas situações ou sobre um personagem mais “exaltado”, ou “apático”, ou “irreal”.

O que ficou impresso na minha mente ao ler esse livro, nascido depois de um longo tempo e de muita dedicação, foi o quão familiares certas narrações pareciam e, ao mesmo tempo, quão impensadas e até surreais outras definitivamente eram! Muito se pode questionar conforme o leitor – eu, você – avança as páginas. Quem teve uma vida que não foi contada por nossos avós, que a contaram para seus filhos e que então chegou até nós? Qual vida é isenta da lembrança do passado e a da preocupação com o futuro? Qual pai não desejou o melhor para o filho – mesmo que o filho achasse que aquilo não é o melhor para ele? Por outro lado, como pode alguém buscar com tanta convicção seu objetivo maior, renunciar confortos e ultrapassar barreiras simples ou inimagináveis e, cedo ou tarde, deparar-se com a cegueira, a traição, a violência, o abuso e o abandono como recompensa? Peças desencaixadas. Descrições fortes. Cenas impensadas. Pessoas frias. Solidão.

O leitor será levado por momentos incríveis quando se identificar com boa parte das palavras que poderão remetê-lo à sua família, à sua infância e aos conselhos do seu próprio pai; ao longo da narrativa, será tomado por compaixão, indignação e revolta e se perguntará vez ou outra o que deu errado, o que foi perdido, onde foi o passo em falso.

Ao final, perceberá que o passo em falso sempre estava ali, ora evidente, ora oculto, mas sempre ali. O gatilho estava claro desde o início e foi alimentado, capítulo a capítulo, com pitadas de verdades chocantes e de circunstâncias utópicas. Intrigante? Vale a leitura para constatar.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin!

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.
