Hello dear reader.
Hardly Children is a series of short stories about children who have to deal with adult issues. The stories seem random, but have an underlying theme of innocence being lost.
I found some of the stories difficult to read because they seemed very harsh. That said, I was compelled to keep reading.
Some of the stories stuck in my head and I found myself thinking about them long after I finished reading them. Laura Adamczyk writes bluntly from the children’s viewpoints and has the ability to draw you in quickly.
I’d recommend this book as an interesting read. However, I feel I have to add a trigger alert for people who had, for lack of a better word, difficult childhoods.
I was given a free copy of this book by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Hardly Children will be available November 20, 2018.
Until next time…
