Review: Leave No Trace by Mindy Mejia

September 4, 2018

There is a place in Minnesota with hundreds of miles of glacial lakes and untouched forests called the Boundary Waters.

Ten years ago a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned.


Search teams found their campsite ravaged by what looked like a bear. They were presumed dead until a decade later...the son appeared. Discovered while ransacking an outfitter store, he was violent and uncommunicative and sent to a psychiatric facility. Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with their high-profile patient. No matter how she tries, however, he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last ten years of his life


But Maya, who was abandoned by her own mother, has secrets, too. And as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic boy who is no longer a boy, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world.

*** 3 Star Review ***


When I first saw that this author had written another book, I had to jump on it. I was in love with her first book, Everything You Want Me to Be.


In the likes of her previous book, the plot is unique and intriguing. You get pieces of the current story intermingled with the past and how they eventually connect. I was a little shocked in how the past connected to the present. The author is a genius in this fact. 


The downside. I was disappointed in the telling of this book. Most of the book drug. There was more down time in the book than things actually happening. I found myself struggling to keep going in many places. I needed a little bit more in this book for me to fall in love with it.


Overall, this wasn't necessarily a bad book. I am sure there will be people that will fall in love with it. However, there will be many that will be bored due to the lack of things happening to keep their attention.
