Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

@kidlitexchange #partner ☄I purchased this book from Half Price Books after realizing I could get it from my partners at #kidlitexchange. All opinions are my own. ☄ Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Kyra and Corey have been best friends since birth. Both growing up in a small Alaskan ex mining town and never truly fitting in there. One day Corey’s mother takes a job far away from their home town and Corey must move away. Days before she is scheduled to visit Kyra dies. When Corey arrives back in town she realizes this is not the town she left just months earlier. Not only has the town changed, but they are hiding secrets Corey must sort through to find the answers of her friend’s death. Finding an ally she never would have guessed she is able to find information that leads her to more than she began with. And while this is one of the saddest stories I have read in a very long time, I could not put it down. It begins with death and ends with once upon a time. It takes true writing talent to write a book backwards. You must give up all to start over in this book and it truly is written beautifully. ☄☄☄ Review also posted on Instagram @borenbooks, Library Thing, Go Read, Goodreads/StacieBoren, Amazon, Twitter @jason_stacie and my blog at
