Book Review: Invisible River

Invisible RiverInvisible River by Helena McEwen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When Evie goes to art school in London, she leaves her alcoholic father on his own only to have him show up drunk on her doorstep a few months later. Luckily Evie has made some good friends at school who can support her through this time.

This was a sleepy, meandering book. The author is great at using descriptive language and the book is filled with her robust imagery. The problem is that there isn’t that much plot or character development behind that imagery. I didn’t feel connected to Evie or her friends – I was able to put the book down for long periods of time without thinking about it.
