Hi friends! Today’s book thoughts are for Jackal by Erin E. Adams.

Big thanks to Random House for giving me a free copy as part of their quarterly Stories & Suspects box. All opinions in this review are mine.

Liz has been hunted since she was a teen. She had no idea that this was happening. And in a town where if you see something, no you didn’t…the stories of the shadows in the woods were just a part of her childhood.

Except when she returns home bruised and battered, all the past comes to the present. The racism has never left this town, but it’s a “good” place so it largely goes ignored by everyone. Liz’s mom is repeatedly targeted but puts up with it because she believes it would happen anywhere else, too.

This book was a page turner, but it was hard to sit with. I wanted to hug Liz often. She has put up with a lot…down to being framed for abduction/murder merely because she is black.

When she decides to find out why black girls have repeatedly gone missing she finds she doesn’t know who, if anyone she can trust.

And she learns that lesson in a very hard way.

I enjoyed Jackal a lot. It will definitely having me appreciate the stars, and be wary of the shadows.

I give Jackal 4 stars.
