Left begins with a suicide that shows us the reality of how loss and emotion can destroy a life if no one is there to help. Graves then moves us into a world where domestic violence is real and shows us through her characters what it is like to deal with a difficult situation and how the main character Baylee learns that what is wrong with her world is classified as domestic violence. It is something that moves into Baylee’s life slowly and when she realizes what is going on it almost destroys her. Graves sends a strong message in the pages of this book she quotes it in the beginning “Your own two feet are all you have when you’ve been …left.” (T. R. Graves) Strength has to come from within, but sometimes to find it you have to meet others that have survived it. Left will hold your attention and will open your eyes as well. This story will provide you a read you will not soon forget.
