In Leah's Wake Review

In Leah's Wake, a novel by Terri Giuliano Long, is a moving story about how that perfect picture family next door has their own issues. They too struggle with the day to day issues of finances, family, and parenting. Things aren't always what they seem.

Terri Giuliano Long's story reflects every parents nightmare. We do everything we believe is right for our kids and push them because we want them to succeed. But what happens when our children make their own choices that are clearly not for their benefit. This story is every parents nightmare. How far do we go to protect our family? And how do we balance our involvement with each and every person?

As a parent, I could relate to the parents of the story. At some point, I had to let my kids make their own decisions. But I never had to face what the parent's In Leah's Wake had to face. The story shows how one decision can spiral out of control and become a series of bad decisions. It shows how each and every person affects the family unit.

The story is full of compassion and fear. The story also makes you take a look at your own family. I give this story 5 stars and recommend reading to anyone with tweens. Although it is fiction, this book can be a great reference for parenting teenagers.
