    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Kindle Scout Your mother wants the child you re carrying That s the motherly instinct, one of the strongest instincts in the world I ve never heard of a mother seeing it any other way This was a YA dystopian story, about a girl who was pregnant with her parent s child Hanna was an okay character, and I felt quite sorry for her that she was having her life taken away from her It seemed quite harsh the way h [...]

    3.

    4. This story takes place sometime in the 70 s It tells the story of bridge daughters and one special bridge daughter, Hannah, is the main character A bridge daughter is born pregnant with her parents child It is like a parasitic twin that starts growing when the bridge daughter turns 13 When the twin is born, the bridge daughter dies, her purpose in life was to nurture her parents healthy child Hannah s family raise her differently than other bridge daughters She has been educated and loved since [...]

    5. A Story That Will Shatter Your Heart, BEWARE Oh my goodness I ve never read anything like this before This is one screwed up Society Even though this story is told from the perspective of a 12 to 13 year old girl, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enraptured from the first chapter Several controversial subjects are sewn in to the main plot with a very sadistic twist This book takes being a serogate mother to the extreme I truly loved the inventiveness of Nelson to create this entire beli [...]

    6. Great fiction bookThe author combined biblical source to tell story of thirteen years old girl in Concord California and with sad ending Great fictional story.

    7. I received a free copy of this book through Kindle ScoutReally an amazing story How do we choose which lives are important I think I would have preferred a different ending, but I have no idea what that would have been Any variation seems to end in the same place choosing which life Well written and very thoughtfully done.

    8. This is a very quick read, possibly in the young adult category I found the premise of the bridge daughter fascinating and enjoyed following Hanna as she made her harrowing life choices, moving from her initial devastation to eventual acceptance of her situation This dystopian novel has so many parallels to our own reality that it is very believable.

    9. Very intense storyExcellent writing, I truly could not put it down After reading the book synopsis as a sci fi fantasy release, I wasn t sure if it was really my type Once I started it I was so drawn in that I finished it in one day.

    10. Haunting and beautifully written I could not put this book down I found Hanna to be a strong and likable protagonist, and I was rooting for her the whole way through The similarity between the world of the story and our own world was unsettling and very thought provoking.

    11. Infuriating Still, it was fascinating I read 85% the first night that s the first time in a long time that I stayed up late to read almost an entire book.

    12. I received a free copy of this book through the Kindle Scout programme so I think I should write a review I rarely write reviews and this one is particularly difficult because I have mixed feelings about the book On the one hand the book is very well written and on the other hand it is rather disturbing as it gives us gives us a world very much like ours where there is a large underclass of bridge daughters who really have no hope and are generally treated very badly The worst thing is that the [...]

    13. I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review Wow, this was an emotional story It s been a long time since I had a good ol ugly cry while reading a book This was a very thought provoking and emotionally traumatizing reading experience for me The whole concept of a bridge daughter is both interesting and terrifying at the same time The story is about Hanna and how she is what they call a bridge daughter She is born pregnant with her parents child and when she turns 14 she wil [...]

    14. Bridge Daughter is a very unique and original story The premise is basically that most women do not give birth to their own children, but rather, they give birth to bridge daughters who are born pregnant with the parents real child These daughters are just like normal children until their pregnancy suddenly becomes apparent at about the age 13 It doesn t take much to imagine that the main character in this story doesn t want to have her parent s baby and instead wants to go to college and live h [...]

    15. I don t really know what to say about this book It was an extremely disturbing premise, and I couldn t stop reading it It was like watching a car crash and being unable to look away It s a YA book set in an alternate reality where human reproduction has evolved very differently Hanna finds out on her 13th birthday that she is a bridge daughter she was born carrying her parents child, and the dormant pregnancy will soon begin progressing Shocked and scared, it tells the story of how she deals wit [...]

    16. What an absolutely bone chilling premise This is one that I would love to read The vivid and might I add twisted imagination of this author I fully intend to check out his work Happy Reading everyone

    17. Do you grow up and become your own person or slowly succumb to your own biological predispositions and societal pressures Great sci fi premise executed expertly by Jim Nelson.

    18. Bridge DaughterIt is not often that I find myself fully in tears at the end of a book This is well worth the read.

    19. If I had to sum this book up in one word I would say intriguing.The book follows thirteen year old girl named Hannah She is, what is referred to in the book, a bridge daughter This means that she is carrying her parents child and when the baby is born she will die There seems to be no way around this until she meets a friend of her aunt who had a procedure called a bi graft The process is illegal and after it is performed the recipient has to go into hiding for the rest of their life It kills th [...]

    20. I don t know what to think about this book It s a difficult concept, a mother giving birth to a human incubator, who will in turn, give birth to the mother s child 13 years later and then die The story is incredibly well written and interesting, which is why I gave it 4 stars I don t think it s the kind of story I could read again and again, which is why I m going to donate it to my local library For me, there are so many ethical questions that are raised in this book, but seeing how it s fictio [...]

    21. There were several typos.There were also a couple of logical glitches For example when she says that birth mothers nurse bridge babies but by the time the real babies come they re ready for solid foods but then when she visits baby Cheryl s house it stinks of sour formula But still the idea is truly intriguing and the story itself is thoughtfully done even if I wish the main character made different choices

    22. I won this Free book through first reads.Hannah was thirteen and had to follow the tradition set before her She was to bear a child for her parents She had many questions and tried to to change her fate Her friends seemed to accept this way of life better than Hannah, but to no evail Hannah bore the child her parents wanted and slipped away peacefully.This story was out of the box for me.

    23. Great book book 1 of 2 bit you could read book 2 Alone but highly recommend read this one first it s a book that makes you wonder if it was real and really happened What would you do It s a story that seems believable as if it could happen in real life if the world happened that way

    24. Interesting indeedI felt as if I was Hannah, as I read the story I swayed with every emotion, and hoped that all would be well for Hannah The concept of a Bridge between parenting made the plot very interesting.

    25. Too sad an ending.I was hoping for a different ending Too sad and morbid for my liking I couldn t enjoy the book knowing how it was going to end I m not sure I want to read the next book.

    26. Interesting but not the happy ending I was hoping for It was an interesting idea, and I liked sine characters than others, but I wanted a nice, happy ending or closure.
