I truly loved this book. I never read the author before, but, after this I bought the others. It just grabbed me in. Lots of high school drama, love, drugs, sadness and love. Michaela troubled teen- I liked the character a lot and felt her angst. She was perfect, had to be perfect, her family was loaded, connected and viscous. Her boyfriend was one sick person. Sick in his mind, heart and on drugs.
“People loved to look at me and covet my life, but if they looked deep enough they’d discover I was spineless and empty. There was nothing there worth coveting, nothing to desire or want.”
Holden, Delilah and family added the tears to every single plot twist. What I got on the back 25% was the Hayden football scenario. Pay attention to that. Brilliant story!
Holden was deep. People didn’t know him, didnt understand him and didnt care. I think if he was 6’4″ they would have bullied him. His size prevented that.
“No, I mean why did you stay with a guy who would take you around people like this? Why didn’t you demand more respect than that?”
“Now I saw her for who she really was. Now I understood how wrong I’d been about her. Now I couldn’t deny that I’d watched her for years without understanding why.”
Holden was also a closet artist. It was therapy after his family situation. Sometimes I wanted a page with just one little picture. Something that told me what Deli looked like or how she danced. You just have to imagine.
Best character should have been Holden right? NO it was Angela. The owner of the restaurant where Holden worked. She was one tough lady. She gets the best character award from me. I hope she is honored!
“You again? Who the hell let you in here?” Angela smiled. “It’s a busy night for fortune telling apparently. But you showed up too late. I just finished shoving the crystal ball back up my ass. Not that it’s needed to know what’ll happen to you.”
