To sum up my thoughts on this book, it’s like a grown-up version of My Sister’s Keeper. Love that book? This book should be your next read. Hated that book? Avoid (or not, I’m not the boss of you :P).

The mother was a terrible mother and a card-carrying bitch. Like every time she showed up I wanted to throw the book across the room, so I just skimmed.

She blamed her daughter on the fact that her speschul snowflake daughter had a heart attack.

Also acted like a primadonna in the ER, calling competent doctors incompetent.

The other characters were just idiotic. I can deal with that though.

I think the idea behind this book had potential, but this execution felt flawed and left me feeling angry and irritated with the wrong kind of feelz.

Original Rules:

It’s simple! Simply post what you’ve read this week, or if you prefer you can do it on a monthly basis, or every other week. It’s completely up to you!

You can post in whatever way you like. Such a simple blog post, vlog or even a photo of the books themselves. I’m going to do a mixture of the photo and blog post with links to the reviews I’ve done for these books.

Do they go together? Strangely, yes. It may not be a mint tea in middle earth, but the equivalent.

TW: Child Abuse

This is not the first time I have heard about the Pearls and this book, but I managed to forget about it, but this came up on my feed, and I am filled up with so much infinite rage at the intensity of a thousand suns. I actually want to punch something (a wall or a punching bag).

To the people who wrote, endorse, and enjoyed this book:

If you think this is how you want to raise your kids: Please do not reproduce, ever. BYE. If you have kids, I hope they get taken away, you get charged with child abuse and get prison time.

Signed with hate,

a survivor (of a verbally abusive household, and sexual abuse)

I am so angry right now.
