Book Review: Me&Emma

Once I started this book I had a hard time putting it down.

It is the story of two sisters, Carrie and Emma, and the hell their lives become after their father is murdered and their mother remarries an abusive alcholic. They suffer emotional, mental, physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their step-father.

It is written from Carrie's perspective, which makes it all the more heart-wrenching. And I sometimes found myself angry at their mother. Although abused herself, she rarely did anything to protect her daughters.

I can't say much more without giving the storyline away.

The end will leave you speechless. Something you wil never expect.

I must warn you that some parts are hard to get through. But it is definitely a good-read. I recommend it.


  1. I really enjoyed this book. It was definitely hard to get through at some points, but very worth it in the end.
