Title: Out of Chaos
Author: Elle Mott
A harrowing true story of choices and consequences.
As a teenager, Elle Mott descended into hopelessness. Her life as a criminal and a vagrant led her deeper into the darkness. Balancing multiple identities, the more
secrets she kept, the more lies she needed. She sheds personas, rebelling against who she was and who she’s becoming, but thousands of hitchhiked miles can’t distance her from the crushing expectations of her great-grandmother’s legacy.
Until she surrenders to herself, she will never find her way out of chaos.
Elle’s life is a journey. She experiences a lot of lows and very many highs. It was engaging to see the way that she combated every situation and how she came out on the other side. The book has some ugly moments and that made Elle a deeper character. No matter what she did/had to do, I found myself drawn to her, hoping that she would be able to make a better life for herself by the end of the book. It didn’t have quite the ending I was hoping for, but it was an emotional ride.
