Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It's a miracle... at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn't going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he'd be able to put the pieces back together. But there's something that's keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable...

This is my first book by Lisa McMann and when I read the premise I was pretty excited to start reading it!

Dead to You tackles a very sensitive subject. Abduction. It may not be something you've experience personally but it happens everywhere. The book kicks into high gear with Ethan being introduced to his family 9 years after his abduction. The rawness and intensity of this book is not low key. In fact, they radiate off the pages. You can't help but feel every emotion that each character is living. Anger, Sadness, Confusion, Happiness. You feel it all!

Lisa McMann did a tremendous job when it came to the development of the Characters. She crafted realistic and passionate characters. They were bold and very powerful.

I was very satisfied with Dead to You. Finishing it in one sitting because I couldn't peel my eyes away. Lisa McMann reveals the rare, dark reality of what happens after a family is reunited. It isn't always perfect.
