Her Name is Mercie is the kind of story that makes you mad for the main character. She’s put into a situation she just can’t win and expected to come out on top.
From the first page of this story to the last, I was hooked. I just couldn’t believe that Mercie kept being given such a shitty hand in life. From the way she finds out about the death of her parents to her new companion to everything that follows.
One of the things I love about Mercie is her sense of humor. Despite all the pitfalls in her life, she still had a snarky and hilarious (to me anyway) sense of humor. She’s definitely someone I could relate to.
This book is fast-paced and just launches you through the story. Before you know it, you are on the last page. I was a bit frustrated by that, but that’s no one’s fault but my own for reading it that quickly.
I adored the ending of Mercie. I guess it was more of a “hope” type thing for me. I was hoping it would end a certain way, but since I know how many authors love to torture their readers, I didn’t get my hopes up. It didn’t end in the way I had hoped, but it was still a deeply gratifying type of ending for me.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a crazy fast-paced story full of excitement and humor.
