A Life Revealed by Suzi Katz

A Life Revealed by Suzi Katz.
From Suzi Katz Books.
Pages: 330.

Tragedy can strike in a split second. But what if that tragedy brings with it both heartache and mystery? After her parents are killed, seventeen-year-old Chloe Jacobs discovers that she's been part of the Witness Security Program her entire life. While enduring twenty-four hour protection from U.S. Marshals, Chloe secretly searches through her tangled family history...and realizes that in order to find the truth, she'll have to fight for her safety, dreams, love...and ultimately her life.

I’m a little on the fence about this one. While I definitely enjoyed the romantic and suspenseful aspects of it, I didn’t think it was as great as I had hoped it would be.

The major thing that I have to bring up is how condensed and summarized the majority of it is. A lot of it was unnecessary and wasn’t relevant to anything in the storyline, so the huge paragraphs that zipped through four or five days of Chloe’s life kind of got to be a bit frustrating after awhile.

The story focused more on Chloe’s relationships with Sebastian, her best friend and Christopher, her bodyguard than it did on the mystery of Chloe’s past. The nitpicky, back and forth routine she played with the two was way too often for my liking, but I did enjoy reading as Chloe tracked down and uncovered her dangerous history.

But despite all, I honestly think this one of those books that you have to decide for yourself. What I found not-so-great, I know that others are going to love. A Life Revealed is a raw, romantic and thrilling tale of a girl just trying to find out who she really is, and I definitely recommend that you give it a chance!
