I Am Not Who You Think I Am: A Novel

We rated this book:


It all started with a note. I Am Not Who You Think I Am. Eight-year-old Wayland finds it at the feet of his father right after witnessing him shoot himself. Without thinking, he grabs it and hides it. Eight years later, Wayland begins to question if it was really his father that day and what the note meant. He begins his search for answers, where every new clue leads to more mystery. He knows his mother is keeping secrets and lying about the truth. It doesn’t take long to discover that as horrible as the lie is, the truth can be even more devastating.

What an incredible, sad story. This is the kind of story that lingers long after you’ve finished reading. It’s dark and twisted, with no redemption for the characters. And yet, it is probably a more realistic ending than the ones we normally read about. Secrets and lies damage all those involved, seen very clearly in this story. If you enjoy dark, gritty thrillers, then I recommend you read this book. Just be warned that there are no happy endings here. If you dislike the reality of broken lives, this is not the book for you.
