This book was definately not a terrible read But there were some major things that should vecould ve been changed to make it realistic and likeable Firstly let me start off by saying that the writing was the main problem in this book The characters did not have enough differences I mean sure you have Logan who has a temper and a bunch of stereotypical mean girls but the author had them say the same lines a lot even though they re different people For example whenever a character didn t know a good comeback they would always sayYeah wellEvery single character I m sorry but people don t all talk the same way It just really bugged me A simple problem with a simple solution I can t believe the editor didn t catch itAnother thing I did not like about this book was the fact that the characters were not real I mean they always were doing and thinking unrealistic things These are high school students they don t act like thatHere s an example If your going to read this book then don t read this paragraph because it has a small spoiler in it Okay here it is SPOILER The main character Lacey decides she s gonna start this club for people who lost their parents to help them feel normal I m sorry first of all no teenager would have the guts or stupidity to ask a bunch of students they don t know well to come to some club to talk about their dead parents And secondly the kids who lost a parent would NOT be eager to go to some group like that I mean be real These are teenagers that stuff is embarrassing and weird And they aren t suddenly going to like it just because they tell eachother how their parent died Another thing that bothered meWHY DOES THERE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SOME MYSTERIOUS NEW GUY WHO INSTANTLY FALLS IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE WHO YOU D LEAST EXPECT HIM TO I can t give the author too much crap about that one though because pretty much every romance novel is like that But it still annoys the crap out of meWhat did I like about this book Well Sam the main guy was cute and it was a fairly cute story Also she didn t give into peer pressure and drink and destroy her health like a lot of the depressed teen characters do in a lot of the newer books So it wasn t a terrible read I don t feel like I got ANYTHING out of it though But hey not all books can be amazing

Read Í After Author Kristin Harmel Å PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free M wouldn’t be a basket case Her brother Logan wouldn’t drink And her little brother would still have two parentsBut life goes on even if you don’t want it to And when Lacey gets the chance to make a difference i. This is the third book that I ve won off Goodreads and it is easily the best It deals with a sixteen year old girl and her grief It also deals with her family and how her entire world changes when her father is killed I think Harmel did a very good job with describing the events of this young girl s life without going over the topLacey s reaction to her father s death is that it was her fault She believes that she was the reason for his death mainly because she dragged her feet the morning it happened She seems to deal with her grief by taking on every responsibility Her family is falling apart around her and she constantly feels the need to fix things I felt like she was trying to fix everything in the hope that it would make up for the one thing she couldn t fixLacey also couldn t seem to drum up sympathy for anyone around her Her best friend Jennica had parents who had just gone through a divorce All Lacey could think was that at least they were still alive and despite being such good friends with her couldn t really see how it was worse than what Lacey herself was going through It wasn t until Jennica s father remarried and decided not to invite his two daughters to his wedding that Lacey started to understand that just because your parent didn t die didn t mean you couldn t lose themSam was the love interest of the story and was actually one part of the story that I didn t enjoy His arrival seemed too well placed He moved into Lacey s school about ten months after Lacey s father died and plays the part of the understanding comforter and friend who has also lost a parent He seemed to be everything she needed and of course Lacey who had been closed off to everyone since her father died opened up to Sam Then predictably he betrayed her However to Harmel s credit it was not in a way I thought Harmel had Sam tell Lacey the ever ominous I have something to tell you line which always ends up being something bad I was betting on Sam being sick Then Sam disappears for five days and Lacey finally talks to his aunt It turns out that Sam s father isn t really dead he was just in a coma and had woken upLacey had started a group that consists of kids her age who have lost a parent including her older brother It isn t really a grief group they ve all been through that and couldn t stand it It was just a group of people to hang out with who understood and weren t going to treat you differently For the first time people weren t staring at them weren t giving them sympathetic looks and they knew that the other people weren t befriending them for the sole reason that they had just lost a parent It was a group of kids that finally started to feel normal again if only for a few hours Sam joined the group not realizing at first that it was a group for kids whose parents had died no just people who felt that they had lost them When Lacey learns that not only did he never clear up the misunderstanding but now his father is awake and Same has gotten his second chance she refuses to talk to him feeling betrayed and reasonably so It wasn t uite the surprise I expected which counteracted the formulaic feeling I was starting to get in terms of the romanceLacey s family is also a mess Her mother spends almost all of her time working never really helping her kids in the way that they need it She wasn t dealing with the situation so she couldn t really help her kids deal with it Lacey s younger brother Tanner all but stopped speaking If he said a sentence a day it was a big deal He completely retreated into himself and even stopped hanging out with his friends You find out later it s because he thinks that it wasn t right for him to feel happy to be happy now that his dad was gone Lacey s older brother Logan started drinking heavily Lacey s way of coping was trying to hold her family together I liked the different reactions Harmel presented her readers with No two people dealt with their grief in the same way Lacey continually insisted that she was fine when it was obvious to everyone that she wasn t fineOne of my favorite scenes in the book was when Lacey went to her father s grave on the one year anniversary of his death She had been there earlier with her mother and younger brother but was once again taking care of her family Later that evening she went out running and ran to the cemetery She starts talking to her father s headstone apologizing for everything how she dragged her feet that fateful morning how she should have said something when she saw the SUV coming how she should have looked up sooner and finally that it wasn t her that she wasn t the one that was hit It was such an emotional and moving moment and Lacey finally confronted all of the things that she had been avoiding for a year She finally admits that she was angry at him She was angry at her father for leaving and not caring enough to stay When she leaves the cemetery Sam is standing there ready to support her and Lacey finally forgives him realizing that just because people s parents haven t died doesn t mean that she should shut them out of her lifeThe only other thing about the book that I didn t like was that at the end Logan ends up in the hospital after drinking and hitting a telephone pole with a car He ends up being ok but suddenly all the problems the family was seeming to have disappeared Lacey s mother started to take an interest in her family again Logan went to rehab Tanner found a friend the younger sister of one of the kids in Lacey s group and started talking again I don t mind things fixing themselves because eventually things usually do fix themselves It s never easy and it s never uick but it happens I just think Harmel did it a little too uickly Everything was wrapped up into a neat little bow and everyone was happy again Not that it wouldn t happen I just think that it would take time than thatOverall I was impressed with the book I love YA lit anyway and Harmel really presents us a tragic yet wonderful story I was a little unsure of this book because often books that deal with grief don t execute well However I really feel like Harmel managed to show you how differently everyone reacts to things and not just to death
