JULIE COONS lives in a small town in Oregon. THIS DOES NOT LEAVE THIS HOUSE was her debut memoir. Amy’s bookshelf reviews awarded it the #1 position for top 10 books of 2018. Her second book WHY SHE LIED is based on a true story. Her books are written to lead a movement toward positive change. She tells the stories of her life with honesty and strength.
I don’t really read that many based-on-a-true-story books, but this one just managed to grab my attention nevertheless.Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed, I was
kinda really shocked, I mean I knew human trafficking and that kind of stuff is real but to read about it is another thing. I was really shocked when I discovered thatJulie in the book is really really Julie the author (I mean, I know it says it’s a true story in the cover But I wasn’t sure until the author comfirmed it).
Overall, it was…. quite a read!! And TRUE *OMG!!* which is spooky and cool and interesting and….you should try it ?!
