It also has an extremely ambiguous ending, which as a reader I personally find frustrating, because I generally want closure after investing hundreds of pages into a novel. What a visceral, kind of disgusting word choice. Ryan is one of those people who slides effortlessly into whatever social group he wants without even thinking about it. Maybe it works for other people but for me it just fell flat. She called me two days ago. It kept me thinking, it kept my attention and I thought the author did a fantastic job with the plot.
Her boyfriend, Rader, lives thirty-five minutes away, right at the edge of Philly, in a run-down apartment that he shares with friends. My mouth opens up and the words tumble out. A member of the North Orchard High community passed away over break. The characterization is not that strong, with June being the main character, who is very naive and an emotional wreck, but at times, she acted brave and so coolly among things which scared her, although there is no consistent transformation in June's character to comprehend with her sudden change of demeanor. Despite the beautiful cover this book fell so flat. However things are strange - and lead her to believe that perhaps this is not as straightforward as it seems. And she owes it to her to find out the truth…which is far more complicated than she ever could have imagined.
But one night a year ago, everything changed. Hi, Alva, he says to the rabbits on the screen. Their good time got out of hand. And even that is on a purely selfish level. Not only was this a disappointment, the first quarter was decent.
Books about women and their relationship with each other. June was an okay character and for the most part I liked her, than the book went down hill and so did her character for me. Instead, she seems almost giddy at the opportunity to keep June and readers off balance, and somehow grows both more sympathetic and more deranged as the novel progresses. I think we've all read plenty of books with slightly naive leads and evil opposite characters. And it is comforting, somehow.
Someone's best friend supposedly kills herself, through burning herself. Mostly because I have little patience for stupid people and there's something inherently stupid about finding evidence that someone might have been murdered and launching your own investigation. Delia did not kill her, but helped fake her suicide so that they could all be on the run again forever. Or was it someone in the bad crowd she was involved with? The nylon of his jacket is smooth and cold against my cheek. This is the part of the book that gives me huge flashbacks to reading The Merciless by Danielle Vega another great mindfuckery book. From our shelves to yours. I think she just thought she needed to say something for sympathy, and that worked at the time.
Sebastian almost told June the truth when she was eating pancakes that morning but was interrupted by Evan coming into the room. Angry for how the characters are manipulated and angry that the I didn't read Thirteen Reasons Why, but I will say that this book left me angry. And in the cold blue light of morning, June knew only this-things would never be the same again. I would obviously ruin the fun if I told anything about the twists and turns the story took. Whilst Delia comes across wild and out of control at times, June comes across as more mild. My head detaches from my body.
The main character is lied to so many times by the end of the book it's hard for even the reader to keep everything straight. They had a billion secrets, tying them together like thin silk cords. Good morning, North Orchard students and faculty. However, it was very predictable and I knew who not to trust from the very first page. If anyone else has read this book, please let me know if you think this is off-base or if you agree.
They were flapping against the grass until she accidentally ran right out of one of them. Thanks for that image, Weingarten. The tears are starting to come, but I grit my teeth and I blink them back. Delia is a dark character and surprisingly her flaws made her look so perfect through the pages of the book. The first edition of this novel was published in July 7th 2015, and was written by Lynn Weingarten. Maybe I am going to throw up. And she owes it to her to find out the truth…which is far more complicated than she ever could have imagined.
We make our way across campus, and he drops me off at the door of the English building, where my next class is. Books about the intense, sometimes twisted and hypnotizing friendship women have with each other. But one night a year ago, everything changed. I have a boyfriend, I say. Character Developement wasn't horrible, but i found every character in this book to be extremely unlikeable. I really liked for the first hundred pages and then it all went to hell.
Although it is reported as suicide, June knows her best-friend better than anybody. The ending is just a little disappointing. Delia tipped her head to the side as if she was considering something. Through the flash backs you get the know her better and I caught myself wanting to connect with her. The ending is so abrupt that I'm not even really sure what actually happened. The main character is lied to so many times by the end of the book it's hard for even the reader to keep everything straight. June is certain she was murdered.
