My Rating: 3.5 Obtained: Through Goodreads First Reads I honestly wasn't expecting much from What We Left Behind, but to my surprise, I immediately connected with Jessie and felt her pain. After her father's death and Jonas leaving, Jessie had to restart her life. If I was in her position, I would be in a major depression for so long, but instead, Jessie managed to gather herself and move on. The ending was extremely satisfying and had me urging Jessie on to do the right thing. I'm glad that I won the goodreads giveaway and obtained an autographed copy of What We Leave Behind. It was well worth the read!
