Finding Arun by Marisha Pink

Overview:

If you live your whole life being who everybody else wants you to be, how do you know who you really are?

Nineteen-year-old Aaron Rutherford is already reeling from the loss of his mother, when the unexpected revelation of a dark secret from her past changes his world forever.

Forced to question everything that he has ever believed, should he simply follow the path that has been laid out for him, or will pursuing the truth help him to find what has always been missing?

As the tangled web of lies unfolds and uncertainty takes over, a startling chain of events are set in motion that will see Aaron make the journey of a lifetime to discover not only who he really is, but ultimately who he wants to be.

My Review:

Finding Arun was truly a book that you could not put down once you started reading it!

The detail the author puts into the book is terrific.  It's not too much that you think enough is enough.  It's just the right amount.  The author's words are vivid and you can easily imagine yourself in the story.  For example, "The warmth of the sun's rays gently caressed Aaron's eyelids through the window and even with his eyes closed he could see the hazy yellow and orange hue of the morning."

Imagine yourself in Aaron's shoes.  You think you know everything about your life then something happens and your whole world is turned upside down.  How would you feel? This novel will have you from the first word until the last.

During the cold weather that is taking over the US right now, this is a perfect time to grab a hot cup of your favorite beverage, cover up with a warm (maybe two) blankets and read Finding Arun.

Thank you to the author for providing me a complimentary copy of the book for my honest review.  All opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.
