Arc Review

After The Woods by Kim Savage


From Goodreads

Would you risk your life to save your best friend? 

Julia did. When a paroled predator attacked Liv in the woods, Julia fought back and got caught. Liv ran, leaving Julia in the woods for a terrifying 48 hours that she remembers only in flashbacks. One year later, Liv seems bent on self-destruction, starving herself, doing drugs, and hooking up with a violent new boyfriend. A dead girl turns up in those same woods, and Julia’s memories resurface alongside clues unearthed by an ambitious reporter that link the girl to Julia’s abductor. As the devastating truth becomes clear, Julia realizes that after the woods was just the beginning.

My Review

I received this book as an ARC from the Publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux for an honest review.
Expected publication: February 23rd 2016

I have to admit when I first started reading After the Woods I was ready to give up at about 15% of the way into the book. Well I decided to give the book another a chapter or two and glad I stuck with it. As it turned out to be well worth it.

Would you give your life to save your best friend? Hmm that is a good question. Well Julia did, she saved her best friend from being abducted when they were out jogging. Liv was trying to fight off the abductor and Julia jumped in and started fighting him. Liv managed to get away and Julia was caught. Julia ended up spending 48 hours before she managed to escape.

Now one year later Julia is starting to remember what happened to her in the woods, and Liv is out for self destruction. 

My favorite character in the book is Julia in one part of the book she is described as being sarcastic, funny, dark and dry. All in all she was tough, not just physical but in her mind. I have to agree with that. Julia really does everything she can to figure out what happened to her and Liv and why were they the targets of this abductor.
