You Believers is a powerful cathartic story of casual evil and of how the worst things can be faced so that we might not only survive but grow A young woman goes missing and her mother uproots her life to find her daughter But it is not just the heartbreak or the deep mystery of the hunt for lost loved ones that Bradley so c. I recieved an ebook copy of You Believers through Netgalley and proceeded to sit on it for a month or two I'm not sure why except that the book is extremely depressing and dark and my mood lately has resulted in the need to avoid anything as honestly terrifying as this book is I am placing this on my literary horror shelf but other readers may disagree The book is straight up fiction but the elouence and honesty with which the author wrote elevated the book in my esteem The story telling is masterfulSet in North Carolina You Believers is a crime story reminiscent of In Cold Blood so for the perspectives than anything else Katy Connor has gone missing but there is little mystery as to what happened to her The story focuses on Katy's family how they deal and on Shelby Waters a woman who has also suffered and who now helps people find missing loved ones This book is about loss and acceptance in the most basic definitions To lose a child is the most devastating and horrific thing I can imagine for anyone regardless of the child's age their personal history or the amount of goodness residing within Every person on the world came from someone Murderers and rapists have parents too That may be an inane comment but I think people tend to look at things from limited perspectives Bradley has written something that made me feel than most anything else I have read this year and made me think about the different types of loss from the loss of innocence the loss of the ideal imagine we may try to hold onto of another person and the loss of fear and denial we all possess at times Obviously I'm not a deep thinker but Bradley is Her characters were painfully real Her dialogue was incredible I did not want to know much of what was revealed but the story would have suffered with sugar coating I am further saddened since I fear Bradley may have suffered a personal loss to be able to write like this If not then she has an incredible talent for digging into people and seeing the truth Jesse is one of the most evil characters I have ever read made entirely worse by the fact that I know for a fact people like him exist I am sure I have passed many on the street I blame this book for much of the mindless crap I have been reading I needed to get this book out of my head if only for awhile Picking up something horrific was nearly comforting because this book truly scared me This is the type of terror people who read horror on a regular basis do not want to experience This is what I try to escape from when I read any of my supernatural crap about monsters and blood doom and gloom Consider this to be Nancy Grace with tact feelings and some spirituality in a non offensive sense Limited sensationalism with a heart A percentage of the profits of this book go to an organization in NC which helps to find missing persons

Onvincingly explores Rather with the help of an amazingly dedicated searcher family and friends somehow learn to move past unspeakable horror and celebrate the tenacity of the human spirit Offering a vision that is at once ruthless and utterly compassionate Bradley renders the search for logic meaning redemption and even hop. A heart crushing tale of a girl lost a girl saved and several who fall somewhere in between All the characters are flawed and because of this demand sympathy on some level The juxtaposition of the characters poses the uestion when victimized is it better to be killed or live It examines what happens when we come out the other side of horrific events how we are changed and what motivates us as individuals to move on or not Most would say this is obvious but is it What does it mean to live through an unspeakable violation and event whether as a sister mother father or spouse or as the victim Then there are others to consider those who are also touched by evil because as Bradley shows evil seldom takes a straight path Pain splinters and fractures as it spreads like a web Is it our reaction to such evils that continues to feed the fear and power of it You Believers is horrifying not just because of subject matter but also in the manner through which the story is told The starkness is unrelenting and details paralyzing not because of graphic depiction but rather through a realness that won't let the reader look away At times I felt as if my eyeballs were super glued opened It is impossible to detach from what is happening to all the characters emotionally and because of this can be downright exhausting For those who have never experienced anything similar to the situation told in the story hold on because you are about to For survivors of events I warn the pages may contain a great deal of triggers that will be hard to get through For example there is a rape scene that is viewed from the perspective of the victim Not a read to be considered lightly but worthwhile to examine if you have the strength to face human helplessness and the grace to rise above it
