Goodreads Synopsis:
A dark, psychological thriller about a boy's search for himself

Four thousand, three hundred and seventeen stitches, his father had told him once. All the King's horses and all the King's men had put Henry Franks back together again.

One year ago, a terrible accident robbed Henry Franks of his mother and his memories. The past sixteen years have vanished. All he has now are scars and a distant father—the only one who can tell Henry who he is.

If he could trust his father.

Can his nightmares—a sweet little girl calling him Daddy, murderous urges, dead bodies—help him remember?

While a serial killer stalks their small Georgia town, Henry unearths the bitter truth behind his mother’s death—and the terrifying secrets of his own dark past.

Sometimes, the only thing worse than forgetting is remembering

My Thoughts:

Henry Franks is a gritty and edgy novel that will take the reader to places they never would expect. 
I was thoroughly thrilled with this book. I was not at all expecting the outcome. 

Henry lives his life in solitude and when he meets Justine, the girl next door, Henry can see the light at the end of the tunnel for the first time. 

After being in a horrific car crash that stole his mother, Henry cannot remember anything about his life from before. Henry keeps having these strange dreams and he cannot figure out what they mean.

The relationship between Henry and his father is non existent. He doesn't even truly know who his father is. But Justine helps Henry unlock the secrets to his past. Sometimes secrets should stay hidden.

Henry search for the truth unlock the terrible secrets that his father has been hiding. 

I adored this book. It was a refreshing read. Murder and mystery plague this novel from beginning to end. It was raw and emotional. I highly recommend reading Henry Franks. Henry Franks will make you think. You will not want to put this book down until you have all the answers.

If you are looking for a book that will knock your socks off and one that I guarantee you cannot predict the ending too, then this is your book.
