I love it when authors are engaged with their readers. I will spare you the ongoing list of examples of extremely poor writing that I compiled in my head while reading, but you will get to enjoy a few. You let Amanda die! I wanted to get it over with so badly so I could move on to the next one, and that’s not how a reading experience should be. I wanted to like this, but I didn’t.

I really like that it covers bullying. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. Yet, while I realize Rose is not always thinking clearly, the fact that she repeatedly makes stupid mistakes drove me insane, especially as her husband and lawyers do give her great advice, but her stubbornness gets in the way of heeding it. Did you know that you could be held civilly and criminally responsible for any child in your care when you are volunteering at a school? She had a solid marriage and a great little family. Books that have page chapters have been proven to be harder to read for most people, and I’m one of them. Anyway, Melly’s mom volunteers one day in the cafeteria to sort of watch to see how the other children are After reading the first few chapters, I wasn’t sure if I could continue. But then it is discovered that one of the little girls Rose had led to the hallway was still in the building.

Email llisa Address never made public. It started off quite promising; an explosion, who does Rose save? Where were your editors? Melly survives and so do the other girls but Amanda is some how critically injured and in a coma.

Rose becomes the town scapegoat then and her life begins to spiral downward. I was riveted from page 1 through the end. Somehow she manages to get both girls out, but Amanda runs back in to retrieve her ipod and is victim to too much smoke inhalation. The story lacked character development, realistic dialogue, and mystery the entire way through. Where did Melly go?


I kept reading lines like ‘because he didn’t yet know that all moms [sic] are superheroes’ and other. September 16, at 7: She figures everything out.

I have since learned that Lisa Scottoline is a very prolific and popular writer. It seemed like a moral and emotional dilemma that might play out in an interesting way-and it did-for about the first 20 chapters. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review me.

Her wit, warmth, and charm emanated off the pages. Who is in this target audience of action hero moms? Some entertainment can synpsis had with this book if you are aware of its failings and are able to overlook them savd suspend your belief for a little while.

Also, Scpttoline remember my family accompanying mum on a business trip to Scotfoline when I was about 13, and reading Lisa Scottoline’s first book because I had run out of my books and only had my parents’ ‘adult’ books. The It took me almost three months to finish my last read of pages and only a day and a few hours to finish the pages in Save Me by Lisa Scottoline.

It just sounds too risky. I know he thought she was his mother because of her Halloween costume. What follows is a pretty intense, fast paced ride.

Save Me by Lisa Scottoline

The first ten pages of this book broke my heart, brought tears to my eyes, and exposed my deepest fears about sending a child to school. When Rose McKenna’s daughter is injured in an explosion in the school cafeteria, she has to choose between saving the children in front of her or looking for her daughter.

I really wanted to like this book. Put this book back on the shelf and back away slowly.

If you’re looking for a nail-biting, edge of your seat mystery, pick up a different Lisa Scottoline novel. This part of the book was interesting despite the flaws above. This moral dilemma focused story turned into a vigilante who dunnit. Sorry, I just see so many kiddos with much bigger issues that a birthmark does not tug on my heartstrings.


Rose is just unlikeable. H Save Me will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda’s injuries on her. In hindsight, it may have been the kind of shockingly “easy” book that Save Me is, to have given me the confidence to peruse all aisles of book shops from then on. This book, though, was fucking terrible. Save me By Lisa Scottoline.

This is probably the worst book review I’ve ever written but words simply do not cover it.

Some people might prefer it that way, but I personally hated it. I love it when authors are engaged with their readers. Synopais 08, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: The very ending is what bumped up the rating for me. I don’t know how to explain it.
