I'm very excited to share with all of you that I've received my first of three five-star editorial reviews from Readers' Favorite, this one written by K.C. Finn. Download the full file to see the detailed review of this book!
Author Jamila Mikhail has crafted a touching and poignant work of fiction with plenty of dramatic highs and lows to offer its readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was its deep emotional resonance and commitment to realistic feelings, even in a supernatural and quirky plotline. Adler is a fascinating character who holds up a mirror to Joanie’s own struggles and their bond is well penned to develop into something truly powerful by the novel’s end. I feel that young adult readers will empathize closely with Joanie, whilst older readers will admire the parallelism in the historical references and the trials of modern life. Overall, I would highly recommend Don't Let Me Go to readers of historical and contemporary mash-ups, realistic supernatural elements, and for emotive drama fans everywhere.
