This book is about Erika, a mother, who seems to have lost her child in an apartment building and is frantically searching for her. The concept and premise were interesting enough for me to pick up this book but, it was not as gripping as I expected it to be. The story moves back and forth giving us a glimpse into the past and how Erika comes to be where she is – the apartment building lobby. With the help of a security guard, she proceeds to search every corner of the building, turning this into something of a mystery.
Though decently written, the story did hold my attention. At times, I was just waiting to get to the end of the book since I had already started to read it. The plot was quite confusing and it was only towards the end that things were a little more clear. The characters also sometimes acted in ways that no one would in real life causing the reader to question their actions.
This is a story that tries to delve into the psych of a mother who lost her child, the trauma and confusion. It is quite relevant in that it deals with mental health and brings about awareness that we need today.
