What The Valley Knows
Publication date: January 25th 2018
Genres: Romance, Young Adult
Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.
When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.
The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.
I really wasn't sure if I was going to like this book very much but I really wound up loving it. I just didn't know how I really felt about the characters at first besides I always liked Molly. It was Wade and they other characters I wasn't sure about at first. After the first three to four chapter's I was hooked, and after the car accident I was all into the book and wanted to find out how it was going to end. That's also when I started to like Wade and Molly's mother.
I have to warn you that rape does take place in the book, so if your sensitive or don't like these types of books you might not want to read this book. It doesn't go into a lot of detail but you know it happens, just not a lot of details.
The end is okay, nothing earth shattering happens but nothing awful happens either. But I really teared up a lot in parts of the book and Molly really breaks my heart with things that happen to her in this book.
I have to say I really am so glad I asked and was chosen to take part in the book tour for this awesome book. Thanks so much to the author, publisher, and Xpresso book tours.
