Superb Blurb: The Girl With All The Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

Some very heart-twisting lines of love in this story. Equal parts cringe-inducing imagery. Let’s just say Amy Bellafonte from “The Passage” stars in “28 Days Later” with “Firefly” Reavers in a supporting role.

What she thinks is: this could have been me. Why not? A real girl, in a real house, with a mother and a father and a brother and a sister and an aunt and an uncle and a nephew and a niece and a cousin and all those other words for the map of people who love each other and stay together. The map called family.

 

Growing up and growing old. Playing. Exploring. Like Pooh and Piglet. And then like the Famous Five. And then like Heidi and Ann of Green Gables. And then like Pandora, opening the great big box of the world and not being afraid, not even caring whether what’s inside is good or bad. Because it’s both. Everything is always both.

 

But you have to open it to find that out.
