This was a #BookstagramMadeMeDoIt read. I saw this book getting great reviews on #Instagram and thought I’d give it a try. My library had the audio available and so I grabbed it right away. I had no idea what the book was about, which is my favorite way to start a new book!

Have you ever watched the old movie, Rear Window with James Stewart and directed by Alfred Hitchock? If you haven’t, please go rent it now, don’t wait! I saw it in High School and I was so intrigued and I think it is one of the main reasons why I started turning to mysteries. Well that and of course, Nancy Drew.

This book reminded me a lot of that movie. Daniel has a debilitating disease which leaves him wheelchair bound. He witnesses what he thinks is a kidnapping and that’s where the mystery begins. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened in the mystery part of this story. It was quite a fun ride.

The other part of the story is Daniel explaining his disease, his life to date and his hopes for his future (if you can call them hopes). It was such a unique crossing of topics in a book. I was captivated by how Daniel manages his disease and his current lifestyle.

The ending was maybe a little bit rushed but overall, very interesting. I was almost brought to tears as it was very bittersweet.
