BJ’s Standout Reads June 2021
The Chain by Adrian McKinty WOW! I was obsessed with this one. One day Rachel gets a phone call, her daughter Kylie has been kidnapped. But then she gets the most insane ransom demand ever. She has to pay money for the ransom, of course, but then she has to kidnap someone else’s kid and get them to pay the ransom in order for Kylie to get returned to her. So, really the people who kidnapped her child also have had their own child kidnapped—so they had to kidnap Kylie to get their kid back. And so it goes, like a chain. If she breaks the chain she and Kylie will be killed as well as the people above her in the chain. You know from the beginning that she is somehow going to bring down the chain, but how? I was riveted to this one.
People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd Emmy is an instagram influencer mom. She has millions of followers and she’s making bank at being an influencer. This gives you a peek at behind the curtain in the influencer world, and how fake it really is. But someone wants to bring Emmy down and Emmy then has to figure out if curating her family online is really worth it or not, knowing that there is someone out there who wants to hurt her and her children.
