#Orangeberry Book Review - Leaving the Hall Light On by Madeline Sharples

Leaving the Hall Light OnLeaving the Hall Light On by Madeline Sharples
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think as parents, all you ever want to do is protect your child. When you think you have failed to do this, then you have failed as a parent even if the situation is beyond your control.

This was a heartbreaking read. There were many bits when I put myself in her shoes and I could feel the sheer terror pass through my veins. I do give her a lot of credit for having the courage to document this journey to share with us.

As a book, it wasn't an easy read because you become so choked up with emotions. But there are no writing / editing issues. The writing style is smooth, and keeps you turning the pages.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: PG, because it touches on issues such as suicide etc which I wouldn't recommend to anyone below 13.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
