Snow Angel by Glenn Beck – My Heart Felt Book Review
Book Review: Snow Angel or The Snow Angel by Glenn Beck is about a woman named Rachel and her daughter Lily. Rachel’s husband, Cyrus, abused her. She was always making up excuses so Cyrus wouldn’t get in trouble. She tried to hide the fact that Cyrus abused her from their daughter, Lily. One day Lily woke up and went down stairs to find Rachel with a black bruise on her cheek and a cast on her arm. Then, at that moment, Lily knew what had happened. Her dad was a bad man.
The book is based on true events that occurred int he author’s life. He wrote the book as sort of a memoir but it is a work of fiction, which means it is not true. The book is just based on his life experiences. The fact that the book was based on true events made it more meaningful and real to me. After reading the book you will definitely realize that no one should have to endure abuse. This book shows how bad abuse can be. There is a lot of sadness in the book but it ends with a victory. So, be sure to read it.
My golden excerpt is: “When he finally flung me across the master bathroom, I was surprised that he had managed to control himself for so long. As I crouched on the tile floor; I knew that my wrist was broken. But it hardly seemed to matter.”
I read this book at the recommendation of my Dad. I didn’t want to read or do a book review on it because I thought it was really for grown ups to read. I was wrong, this is a great book for teens to read. It will really get you thinking about some serious topics. I am so glad I did read it because I really loved this book. I couldn’t relate to it at all because it is a world I have never experienced in my life. However, I suggest you read it because it will definitely open your eyes to abuse. It will make you realize that nobody should ever have to suffer abuse at the hands of another. It is just wrong. That is one reason why I wanted to do this book review. Another reason I wanted to do this book review is because the book is about forgiveness. It will touch your soul.
The last reason I wanted to do a book review on Snow Angel by Glenn Beck is because this book is a page flipper. I could hardly put it down. Snow Angel just got better and better as the book went on. Snow Angel by Glenn Beck is a book that you will want to read more than once. So if you like books that make you just want to flip the page you should read this book. This was one of my most favorite and most memorable books I have ever read.
