The Argument by Victoria Jenkins
Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Bookouture for the ebook ARC of The Argument by Victoria Jenkins for an honest review.
It happens to every mother. One day whose world you once were, become someone you barely know. And you don’t know the secrets she’s hiding….
One hot summer night, 15 – year old Olivia comes home late from a party she is strictly forbidden from going to, and she and her mother, Hannah, start arguing. Soon Olivia speaks the words that every parent has heard from their teenage child:
“I hate you. You’ve ruined my life. And I’m never speaking to you again.”
Olivia has never been an easy child, completely different from her younger sister, Rosie. But Hannah thinks Olivia’s outburst is the end of a normal family argument. In fact, it’s only the beginning of a nightmare…
After one week of Olivia giving the silent treatment, Hanna knows Olivia is hiding a bigger darkness – something that could threaten to tear the precious family apart…
I give this book a rating of 3 stars. This book was really slow to read, I just couldn’t get into it. I found that he characters were brought together well though, some characters weren’t very likeable though. I didn’t really enjoy this book at all. There was a shocking twist around 80% of the way through the book. The twist seemed to come out of nowhere and there were no clues or hints leading up to it.
