The future looks promising and it’s supposed to come easily.
Smart, determined and beautiful; college student and art model Nell seemed to be the girl who had it all. A passionate relationship with one of the art students leads to an unplanned pregnancy that threatens to change everything though, and she must build a very different life than she envisioned. For thirteen years Nell and her son Charlie are a unit and their world is complete. That world will stop spinning though, when there’s a shooting at Charlie’s school. As Nell reaches out via text in desperation, only the words and the animated ellipsis on the phone screen offer a buffer between life and death. Can she save the person on the other end of the messages in time, and in the process can she save herself too?
Ellipsis isn’t a romance, but it is a love story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from R&R Book Tours.
I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
Ellipsis by Kristy McGinnis centered around many sensitive subjects. As a parent myself, I would never want to walk a mile in Nell’s shoes.
Nell has experienced love, but she also faced a parent’s worse nightmare—the loss of a child. How she lost her child is relevant to today’s world and how people reacted was realistic: marches and calls for reform.
There was an abundant amount of heartache, but a simple text proved the saving grace for two people. Everything changed in an instant. Then and there, I became more engrossed in the story, the outcome. No matter if you are a parent or not, your heart will go out to the person texting Nell. (Being vague on purpose)
After reading Ellipsis by Kristy McGinnis, I’m sure you’ll have the same compulsion as I did…I immediately hugged my daughter, thankful I still could.
