The Hollow Inside

We rated this book:


Phoenix has spent her life living between the back of a van and tents in the great outdoors. She steals for food, while her mother uses her charm to swindle people. Jasper Hollow is a quiet little town. The kind of town that you would see on television, where everyone goes to church on Sundays. Jasper Hollow, however, is where it all started, and Phoenix’s mother is back for revenge. This will be their biggest game of deceit, but Phoenix never expected to fall for the targeted family, or to uncover secrets that have been buried so deep not even a seedling can sprout from the seed of truth.

At first glance, this book looks like a story about an abduction, where a girl wandering in the woods gets grabbed by a man in a white van. In fact, this story is everything but that. The Hollow Inside takes readers through a deep, spiraling tale where truth and perceptions are turned on their head, where no one is sure what is fact and what is a fabricated reality. Brooke Lauren Davis weaves a simple story of lost innocence covered up by so many lies that readers will not be able to help falling for the perceived reality while being shocked at the truth in the end.
