Return to Me by Justina Chen Headley Book Review
Three months before Rebecca Muir is set to begin college, her father reveals a secret that tears the family apart: he is leaving them.
In an instant, Rebecca’s life crumbles—she has to rely on her mother now, when her whole life she’s been her father’s girl; she’s not sure she can trust her high school boyfriend; and her carefully planned-out life suddenly feels all wrong.
Reb’s journey takes her across the country and back, and is for anyone who has experienced uncertainty or betrayal. This book will inspire readers to overcome life’s challenges and come out triumphant on the other side.
5 OF 5
Return To Me is one of those books that stays with you long after you read it. This is the first book I have read from Justina and it won't be the last. I am thankful to Around The World ARC Tours for allowing me to read and review this book. This is a book every girl should read.
In Return to Me Rebecca is in her senior year of high school and she is planning on her future and where she will go to college. She has been accepted into a college and her plans are set for her future and where she will go from there. Then a few monkey bars come into the picture. Rebecca never ever thought she would fall in love and start dating someone in her senior year but she does. She falls head over heels for Jackson and it scares her because she will be leaving her home town to go to college and Jackson still has one more year of school left.
As if that is not hard enough her mother springs it on her that the entire family is moving with her to the college town. Rebecca is mortified and can't think straight because she had her whole life mapped out and now her mother is telling them they are all moving together and she is floored. What is a girl to do when she wants to get away from her family and spread her wings and fly solo? Then she realizes something is wrong when they all move from her home town and her father starts acting weird.
It doesn't take long for Rebecca to find out why her father is acting weird when he sits them down and springs the news on the family that he is leaving the family to pursue his needs and his likes. The family is devastated and Rebecca is left to pick up the pieces of her mothers broken heart. As Rebecca starts to help her family through this ordeal she will learn about true love and sacrificing. She will learn to open up to her mother and let go of her close relationship with her father. She has always been daddies little girl and when he leaves the family she is crushed but with a little bit of faith and a lot of help she and her family will over come this tragedy that hits them. In the end love conquers all.
This is a SUMMER MUST READ! Justina has done such a great job at story telling you will be enthralled with this book and will not be able to put it down. Happy Reading on the beach!
