Title: The Half Life of Molly Pierce
Series: N/A
Author: Katrina Leno
Genre: YA Psychological Thriller
Publication Date: July 8, 2014

You take it for granted. Waking up. Going to school, talking to your friends. Watching a show on television or reading a book or going out to lunch.

You take for granted going to sleep at night, getting up the next day, and remembering everything that happened to you before you closed your eyes.

You live and you remember.

Me, I live and I forget.

But now—now I am remembering.

For all of her seventeen years, Molly feels like she’s missed bits and pieces of her life. Now, she’s figuring out why. Now, she’s remembering her own secrets. And in doing so, Molly uncovers the separate life she seems to have led…and the love that she can’t let go.

The Half Life of Molly Pierce is a suspenseful, evocative psychological mystery about uncovering the secrets of our pasts, facing the unknowns of our futures, and accepting our whole selves.

My Thoughts

A copy was provided through Edelweiss and HaperTeen for review consideration

I love books where you can't trust the narrator -> I love psychological thrillers, so I had a good chance that I was going to love this.

I didn't.

I don't know if I'm an unfeeling jerk, but I have yet being able to relate, even a little bit, to main characters that are suffering from depression. I just don't get it. I'm not saying I'm a perfectly happy individual. I have my off days but this is just too much. If I can't relate to the main character it's going to go downhill from there.

I've read books with people who had dissociative identity disorders before. I loved them. I thought it was fascinating how the mind tries to cope with things. I thought it was a tad ridiculous here.

That's pretty much all I can say without spoiling. So here it comes: View Spoiler!

In the end, this just wasn't what I was expecting at all. Was disappointed in all aspects. Maybe other readers will be able to relate to Molly like I couldn't and will be able to enjoy this, but it just wasn't for me.


Would I Recommend it?


    1. Hmm probably not the book for me, I did read the spoiler and I really don't think I'd like it very much. Thanks for rating it honestly! :)

    2. My pleasure. There will always be books that work and books that won't :)
