Nine by Rachelle Decker Reviewed

About the book:

Title: Nine
Author: Rachelle Decker
Publisher: Revell

Zoe Johnson spent most of her life living in the shadows, never drawing attention to herself, never investing in people or places. But when a wide-eyed, bedraggled teenager with no memory walks into the diner where Zoe works, everything changes. Now, against her better judgment, Zoe, who has been trying to outrun her own painful memories of the past, finds herself attempting to help a girl who doesn't seem to have any past at all. The girl knows only one thing: she must reach a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, hundreds of miles away, before the government agents who are searching for her catch up to them.

Award-winning author Rachelle Dekker throws you into the middle of the action and keeps the pressure on in this page-turning story that, asks Are we who the world says we are--or can we change our story and be something more?

My Thoughts:

Rachelle Decker has dipped her foot into a few genres as a writer. She wrote an entire dystopian series, a psychological thriller, and a collaboration with her father, Ted Dekker that was a speculative novel, which he is known for. Nine seems to be suspenseful yet also speculative.

For me the book had a very slow start and took awhile to actually get into. The internal struggle of the characters was spot on. Characters had to make choices to either be chained to their past or make changes to be better.

Overall the book is a suspenseful emotional read. I would caution you that there is gun violence, and torture.
