Book Review - Nine by Rachelle Dekker



Zoe Johnson prefers to spend her life living in the shadows. She doesn't like to draw attention to herself or being involved with other people. However, when a disheveled teenager walks into a diner where Zoe works, she feels drawn to the teen. Lucy has no memories and is struggling to figure out what to do next. Zoe is reminded of her own painful memories of the past and wants to help Lucy figure out her own past. Lucy only remembers that she needs to find a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, which is hundreds of miles away. Lucy and Zoe will need to find the woman before government agents find them.

I found the novel to be a fast-paced and an entertaining read. However, I found the novel to be predictable and had the outcome I expected. I did like that the novel teaches readers that our past doesn't limit our future. It does define us but, we can choose who we want to be. The novel has themes of moving on, love,  accepting ourselves, and forgiveness. I enjoyed reading about the characters growing than the "action" and "suspense" parts of the novel.  I would be open to reading more books by the author but, I wouldn't go out of my way to read her books.
