THESE THINGS HIDDEN by Heather Gudenkauf, (2011).
When Allison Glenn was a teenager she was a popular golden girl in high school until she’s sent to prison for ten years for as heinous crime she committed before she graduated. Meanwhile her sister and parents have to live in the same town and it gets rough. Her younger sister Brynn can’t take it anymore, and she leaves town to live with her grandma, and even after five years Brynn isn’t happy taking medication (For what? I don’t know, depression? anxiety?)Then after five years Allison is released from prison for good behavior and she’s in a half way house looking for a job and trying to contact her sister who refuses to talk to her. Meanwhile Allison is working in a book store and the owner has a five year old adopted son. I’m trying to figure out how he is woven into the story. Meanwhile I AM enjoying this book. Why not give it a try?
