When a free promotion for Kate Rigby’s She Looks Pale (Amazon Media EU, 2012), I was very intrigued to read this work, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.
She Looks Pale is a sad yet quirky story written with perfect first-person descriptives. There is a childlike quality of Hannah as we read about her parents’ beliefs about the modern world.
A strong and memorable read, we find that Hannah’s only contacts with the outside world while being isolated in her home is either her mother’s past or the window. Which will she take?
She Looks Pale is relatively short, yet will have a strong impact on its readers with its excellent character development and strong writing. This book was just too good not to be a Book Shelf feature.
