Book Review – Jenna By Tom Stearns

To protect her sister, Jenna endures a living hell at the hands of her mother and ‘uncles’.
But when the boys at her school think they can do the same they are dead wrong.

From the author of ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’ comes ‘Jenna’; a harrowing tale of abuse and bloody revenge.

WARNING 18+ NOT FOR THE EASILY OFFENDED.

First let’s address the warning, serious, pay attention! although not graphic in the descriptions of the abuse you are left in no doubt about the hell that Jenna has to endure. This storyline is tragically all too believable and although the ultimate outcome may not be one that would happen in real life the events that take us to that point very well could.

The characters are well written and truly believable your heart will break not only for Jenna but for her younger sisters innocence that she is fighting so hard to protect. You will want to reach inside the pages of this book and slap the mother for the way she participates in her daughter’s destruction.

This is a story of abuse and survival, of how things escalate, and the consequences of a girl trying to get through each day. It is well written the only complaint may be that you are left wanting more, that you feel you need to know what happens at the end whether Jenna can ever truly have a happy ending or whether she is damaged beyond repair. We can only hope that the author will answer these questions with a sequel at some time in the future.

For stars I give this 5 out of five very disturbed stars, it is not easy to read but once you start you will be gripped.
