Book Review: Since You've Been Gone

Since You've Been Gone by Mary Jennifer Payne: Is it possible to outrun your past? Fifteen-year-old Edie Fraser and her mother, Sydney, have been trying to do just that for five years. Now, things have gone from bad to worse. Not only has Edie had to move to another new school she's in a different country.

Sydney promises her that this is their chance at a fresh start, and Edie does her best to adjust to life in London, England, despite being targeted by the school bully. But when Sydney goes out to work the night shift and doesn't come home, Edie is terrified that the past has finally caught up with them.
Alone in a strange country, Edie is afraid to call the police for fear that she ll be sent back to her abusive father. Determined to find her mother, but with no idea where to start, she must now face the most difficult decision of her life."

Lori's thoughts: **Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.** 

I really enjoyed reading about Edie. And this was a very promising storyline. I felt like there needed to be more. More about her dad. More about the bully at school. The character development could have been deeper. I wanted to know more about Edie's boyfriend. It felt like there were a lot of loose ends that just never went anywhere or were never tied up like they should have, or could have been. I'm still giving it four stars because I liked the book. I just wish there would have been more.
