Many thanks to the Bookworm Girl an awesome book blogger who hosted me and the novel, What If I Go? here-
The questions were interesting and were great to reflect upon in my writer journey. Hopefully, I have inspired others to put pen to paper. The novel is aimed at empowering women.
For all those who ask, ..’but what can I do?’ over difficult circumstances or tragic events then my answer might just be, ‘Why not write about it?’
Raising awareness is sometimes all we can do to help traumatic situations. Signposting vulnerable people and victims to support organisations that deal with sensitive issues such as grooming and sexual exploitation is satisfying. At the end of the book there are pages dedicated to victims giving the contact details of helpful organisations for support.
Another Amazon review of ‘What If I Go?’ is in. Phew!
Five stars worthy of six
The worthy of Six stars part was humbling…
Polly White has created a masterpiece capturing the loss of innocence in a violent world of gangs, drugs and the degradation that encompasses the protagonist’s life as she arrives in the UK from Romania. Wanting a better life, love and education Grace mistakes gifts and attention for love and is lured into the seedy world of drugs and sexual exploitation, used and abused, basically trapped. Grace carries a diary that is her ‘friend’ and allay that saves the day. I have given What If I Go five stars as Polly White has tackled a sensitive & emotive subject that hooks the reader from the outset and is a page turner that takes one through the trials and tribulations of Grace’s life. A good read and highly recommended.
