“I’m not ready for this.“
My Review: The Truth About Letting Go was a very powerful read. Moore has created a true work of art—something that can never be replaced. This novel touched the depths of my heart. It made me feel a variety of emotions. The writing was detailed, descriptive, and had a certain flow. I loved Moore’s writing style; it kept me pulled in for the course of the novel
In The Truth About Letting Go, we follow the life of Ashley Lockett, as she struggles to find herself after the death of her father. Ashley grew and matured so much over the course of the novel. At first, she was heartbroken. Her best friend, her father, died of cancer, and no matter how much she prayer, no matter how much she wished, he was not coming back. She then turned into the complete opposite of what she was. She stopped going to church. She started doing bad things. And she got involved with Colt.
Colt was a character that I honestly did not like for all but the last of the novel. He was arrogant, slutty, and was an extremely bad influence. I hated the person that Ashley became when she was with him. But there are also things that we don’t know about him—reasons that he acts the way that he does. Charlotte was another character that confused me. She was so hot and cold. However, I do feel as if she was a guiding force in the way that Ashley turned out. Through rudeness and jealousy, she aided in making Ashley a better person. And then there was Jordan. Jordan was an amazing character. He was nice, helpful, had a great heart, and made Ashley a better person. He wasn’t afraid to follow his dreams, and he wasn’t afraid to guide Ashley through her grief. The two of them together, although so different, made the perfect pair.
The Truth About Letting Go had a message that will stay with a reader for a long time: Challenges are temporary, and they end up making us better. Things may be tough in life, but you can always overcome your obstacles and get through it. You just have to be strong enough to try. This novel was enchanting and memorable. I cannot wait for the next novel Moore shoots at us next.
