Don't Close Your Eyes by Holly Seddon
Genre: Mystery, Fiction
This is the story of Robin and Sarah, from the present with flashbacks of their childhood where their life changed forever... Remember, Don't Close Your Eyes!
"Almost right from the start of school, Robin and I acted like we had an invisible force field around each of us so we couldn't get too close. It's protection, I suppose. Some people think twins are weird and some twins are weird. They close ranks, turn away from other people and make up their own languages. We don't do any of those things."
After reading the first book Try Not To Breathe by Holly Seddon I couldn't wait to read her new one, and I am not sure which one I liked most! Try Not To Breathe will always be connected to memories of my mum and happiness, but this one has something special... is emotional, dark and absorbing, How a simple friendship could break two families?
While you are reading this book you will want to cry, shout and ask again and again, WHY? How something so simple like a friendship could end so bad?
This is not just the story of Sarah and Robin, it's the story of all the children that had seen their life changing completely without anyone on their side, their loneliness, sadness and fear that the parents should protect but that are so involved in their selves that decide to ignore them.
Robin is living her live through the windows of her house, she watches, controls and stalks all her neighbours, because is the only live she has, it's been years since she last had gone out... Now someone is searching for her, and she'd never been so scared in her life!
Sarah had everything she ever wanted; a man, a baby... but everything is falling apart and she thinks the only one who can help her is her twin sister Robin. Would Robin be the help she needs?
I was so absorbed by the story that I didn't want the book to end, I wanted to know more about Robin and Sarah's life, at the end the book seemed so short, I will miss them!
Remember, Don't Close Your Eyes!
