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?
Nine by Rachelle Dekker is one brilliant plot twisting thriller! I was hooked. Inside, I found a girl and a woman trying to escape the ones wanting to kill them. But as they got further into the escape, the doubt of them both making it out alive was made clear. The older woman was slowing the girl down from freedom and safety. She had to offer herself up and let the girl run away.
The girl was given some details and told where to go. Other than that, she had no idea who, what, or where she was going. Her memory of herself was wiped clean. The only thing she knew was that she was in danger. The older woman died to save her. The dangers and risks in this read were high as the other innocent characters and those from the inside are being chased to protect and expose the bad guys. Talk about suspenseful! Wow! Rachelle Dekker can write well. I loved reading this book, Nine. It’s the perfect suspense thriller to read for the summer.
