Year 7, Book 93

93. What a Mother Knows by Leslie Lehr
This book was extremely readable while also being insanely ridiculous all at the same time. The protagonist Michelle returns home after spending over a year in the hospital recovering from a horrible car crash that she can’t remember. Her husband is distant and has moved himself and her son from CA to NY, her 16 year old daughter is missing, and a young rock star was apparently killed in the crash while riding in her car.

The book is written really well so that you want to find out what exactly happened with the crash and why her daughter has gone into hiding. However, the entire premise of the book relating to lawsuits and all the lies everyone tells her seem out of the realm of reality, which drove me nuts while reading it. If you can get past some some really far fetched premises it’s a good book. If you can’t then this probably isn’t the book for you. I give it a 6 out of 10.
