Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

4 out of 5 stars

Beautifully written with impressive emotional depth. The story flawlessly shifts from the present to past, a current experience that would trigger a flashback of a sad memory. Cassie’s narrative is one you would truly empathize with.


It’s so sad, a sadness so palpable, I wish I could save her from such a terrible upbringing. I wanted to slap her mother senseless to instill some sense and heart in her. I wanted to shake her father out of his inaction and indifference. This is how evocative the story is.

It’s a strong reminder of the power parents especially of their hold over their children, their ability to break or make them. This another eye-opening, thought provoking read not only for young adults but also for adults, especially for parents.

P.S. Don’t you think that’s a gorgeous cover?

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
