Ten years ago Faith escaped from the person that killed her father, sister, best friend and best friend’s mother. Now, she is the girl who lived only to jump from one institution to another. After her most recent release from a mental health institution, Faith returns to her hometown and believes that she sees the man responsible for her life’s turmoil — the problem is that he saw her too.

The Girl Who Lived is a great psychological thriller. Although I picked early on “whodunnit”, I must admit that the red herrings and plot twists in The Girl Who Lived had me questioning my resolve several times.

Greyson has created a protagonist who takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. Faith managed to elicit pity, frustration, sadness and concern. The reader joins Faith a long way into her journey, but through a well spun story we know that she has been to hell and back several times both through her own doing and the actions of others.

If you enjoy psychological thrillers with fast paced writing and intricate characters, then The Girl Who Lived is well worth checking out.
