My rating: 5 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ It started out as a typical Saturday night.
I am still thinking about this book, as it brought up a lot of emotions for me. I thought that I was over something that happened in college and this book brought it all rushing back. In addition to that, as a mother to two sons, this book has left a lasting impression. I want to talk to everyone who read this book and to discuss it at length. This is one of Giffin's most thought provoking books to date. This is is the kind of book that makes a great book club read because there is so much to discuss. Did the reader agree with how the parents dealt with the situation. Who did the reader believe as the book slowly unfolded and the truths came to light? Where did the readers allegiances lie? How would the reader react when facing the unthinkable that is highlighted in this book? There are so many other ethical dilemmas and emotions in this book. This book may change you and will cause you to take pause! All We Ever Wanted is a hard to put down and super important read for all.
