About the book:
After finding a misplaced diary at her local thrift store, Rigby Thomas pays twenty-five cents for another girl’s secrets. Reading the diary is wrong, but there is something about “ME’s” life that lures Rigby into the pages. Pages holding anguish, bitter regrets, and life-altering consequences for anyone brave enough to read the truth. “Sometimes, in order to have a future, a girl must walk through fire… and sometimes, if that girl is lucky, she rises again.” –ME
The Purpose of Me, a young adult novel by Molly Shaffer, is a powerful and compelling story of abuse and its effects on the human spirit. She skillfully weaves together the stories of the mysterious ME and Rigby Thomas in a way that sometimes makes the reader forget whose story is whose – and for good reason. I am definitely not a young adult, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more offerings from Mrs. Shaffer.
