Bookish Thoughts

I love reading! I read books about anything, any time, any place.

Torn Apart - James Patterson

Torn Apart: The True Story of a Childhood Lost - James Patterson

I pulled Torn Apart by James Patterson out of my TBR jar for my next read.

 

This has been sat on my shelf for months, after my mum recommended it to me. It actually deals with an issue very close to my heart, my younger brother has Tourettes Syndrome - a neurological condition, diagnosed when he was 8 - he is now 16. I don't know why I haven't read this yet, but now I have the chance too I'm looking forward to it. Here's the synopsis if you're interested;

 

Torn Apart is the story of one family's courage, heartbreak, sacrifice, and, ultimately triumph.

 

Cory Friedman was an ordinary fun-loving little boy. But one fateful March morning in 1989, Cory's life changed dramatically and was left in tatters.

 

Cory had developed a rare combination of neurological conditions. The life he knew had been torn apart and his family were left watching him suffer. Desperate to help, they embarked on a fifteen-year struggle which took them beyond breaking point.
