BOOK REVIEW: THE GIRL SHE USED TO BE
BY DAVID CRISTOFANO

We hope you enjoy this book review by Diane Pollock.



A fast-paced page-turner with depth!

Melody has spent most of her young life in the witness protection program, shedding identities so often that she loses herself. One day a dangerous stranger calls her by name, her real name-and she is drawn like a moth to a flame, drawn to the girl she used to be.

This book is fascinating on many levels...it is an exploration of identity, a ruthless critique of the witness protection program, a glimpse into the bloody world of organized crime and an unlikely tale of romance. To me, the most successful and interesting of these themes is the dissection of the witness protection program. Something we are all aware of, but never really think deeply about. What would it really be like to be always average, always hidden?

I felt the author did a very credible job of expressing a female point of view, but the love story did ring a little flat, not bad for a first attempt...but not enough depth or build up.

Overall, a book well worth your time, and I look forward to further efforts by this author!
