Terri Blackstock did such an amazing job with this trilogy. If you haven’t read the first two books (If I Run and If I’m Found), please read those before you pick up this one to read. You’re going to want to have all three on hand once you begin though.. because that’s the best way to read these – straight through!
I love the way these books were written, with the parts relevant to each individual book wrapping up at the end of that installment, while the big picture story draws you into the next book effortlessly.
I don’t want to say much about the story. It’s too easy to give away important information with this series. The story of Casey is continued in If I Live, as she remains on the run, the false accusation that she murdered her friend close on her heels.
The ending was, for me, kind of bittersweet. I wasn’t disappointed at all, but… now this trilogy is over.. and even though I will be rereading these books, it’s just not the same.
Comparing this book/series with food, I think I’ll go with scrambled eggs. Scrambled eggs have substance, yet are quick to make and eat. These books are quick reads but they aren’t fluff. They have substance.
