A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti - Book Review


This book absolutely blew me away and I just can't help but to gush about it! "A Heart in a Body in the World" follows a main character named Annabelle, and at the start of the novel, Annabelle decides that she wants to run across the United States, something many people have done to draw attention their cause. At the start of the book, you aren't quite sure what happened to Annabelle, but one of the wonderful things about this novel, is the way the author, Deb Caletti, reveals this to the reader through PTSD episodes that are seemlessly woven into the narrative that felt incredibly natural to the plot and the experience of PTSD. And so Annabelle runs with the help of her family and friends, as well the people who she meets while she is running. Long story short, I love this book. There are so many amazing quotes in this novel and so many nuggets of wisdom about hypocrisy and the terrible lessons that we can be taught as young women. I did struggle a bit with this book plot wise, but I gave this book four stars and strongly recommend it. Have you read "A Heart in a Body in the World"?
