The future looks promising and it’s supposed to come easily.
Smart, determined and beautiful; college student and art model Nell seemed to be the girl who had it all. When she finds herself engaged in a passionate relationship with one of the art students, the future seems only brighter.
Unplanned pregnancy will change everything though, and she has to find a way to build a very different life than she envisioned. For thirteen years she and her son Charlie are a unit and her world is complete. That world will stop spinning though, when there’s a shooting at Charlie’s school. As she reaches out via text in desperation, only the words and the animated ellipsis on the phone screen offer a buffer between life and death. Can she save the person on the other end of the messages in time, and in the process can she save herself too?

Ellipis by Kristy McGinnis is not my typical genre but that cover and the synopsis called me to read this. I’m glad I did because I absolutely loved it! When I sat down to read this, I thought I’d read a few chapters, but I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting.
Kristy McGinnis writes with a poetic, captivating style that just drew me in. I went through all the emotions with this book. It is an absolute page turner, rich with intriguing characters and symbolism.
Nell is a strong women who was compelling to follow. Her struggles are heartbreaking and her strength, inspiring. I really enjoyed her.
Ellipis is a poignant story that kept me invested. I didn’t have to think very long when deciding what rating to give this book. 5 stars. Highly recommended.
Thank you to R&R Book Tours for allowing me to participate in this blog tour. I recieved a free copy of this book to review honestly. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
“Once, on a family trip to Tucson, I witnessed a blooming cereus cactus. The fragile snow-white flower bloomed just one night a year, stretching greedily for sun’s rays it would never feel. I can’t help but wonder now, did it know about its short-lived fate, or did it preen with clueless vanity under the haughty glow of moonlight?“
Kristy spent her childhood as a Navy “brat” and her adult years first as a service member and then as a Coast Guard wife. A lifelong wanderer and now emptynester, she’s set permanent anchor in Virginia Beach, Virginia with her husband and that most rascally of rascals- her cat Percy. When not plucking away at her keyboard or eagerly devouring every book she can get her hands on; she enjoys theater, beach combing, hiking, wine tasting, and obsessively planning the next journey.
