When I d heard abuse , I d thought of violence as being something simple I hadn t even considered the framework that allowed it to happen in the first place The blind eyes turned, the excuses made, the insidious lies whispered into the ear of a child so desperate for love they mistook a gentle tone for truth The last thing I d expected when starting this book was to relate to Suzanne But I do So much It s total bullshit I hate it when people make sadness all deep and beautiful When I d heard abuse , I d thought of violence as being something simple I hadn t even considered the framework that

last thing I d expected when starting this book was to relate to Suzanne But I do So much It s total bullshit I hate it when people make sadness all deep and beautiful and, like, profound It s not profound It s not beautiful It sucks It sucks balls I can actually see myself in her and I don t know how to feel about that Because she s kinda unstable and fragile and her moods seem to always be in whiplash mode But she also said all the things that I wanted to say And she had these thoughts that like they were linked straight from my brain It s true that view spoiler my dad stopped hitting me, hide spoiler but it s not better Nothing was fixed No one talked about what had happened, no one said sorry And theit went on, the worse it felt It was like the only difference was that everyone was on eggshells around me, like it was my fault You know what s worse than the abuse it self in this case The discrimination When you have two kids but only one bare the burnt of your abuse That shit fucks you up FOR LIFE You ll always be questioning yourself, seeking validation every which way you can and it s one big pervasive, never ending path And honestly, quite useless SHITHe misses me being this little kid who didn t realize how bad it actually was Because you don t, when you re a kid It s just your normal I m exhausted by the time I turned the last page, so Bravo to Sara Barnard to get the complicated and fuckup mind of a discriminated, abused daughter so right Thank you BEAUTIFUL BROKEN THINGS is a book that the YA world desperately needs a book about the beauty, passion and

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN THINGS is a book that the YA world desperately needs a book about the beauty, passion and extremities of female friendship Barnard perfectly captures the drama and chaotic emotions that contemporary girls experience in their teens and presents the reader with three complex protagonists whose relationships are built up and torn apart without reservation BBT is a deeply affecting coming of age novel free of clich , and I have not read a book in a long time that so accurately portrays teen girl friendships This book is exquisite, and exactly what YA needs Books about female friendships I still can t get over how REAL this story was, every single part of it was perfectly realised It was so sophisticated in how it was written, with beautiful BEAUTIFUL prose, and yet it never once dragged and I raced through it It deals with difficult topics with sensitivity and humour, and doesn t once patronise the subjects it tackles I am so excited to see what Sara writes next This author is one to watch Beautiful Broken Things was a gorgeous read totally heartbreaking, totally heartwarming, happy, sad and all the things inbetween Yep up and down like a yo yo I was during

heartwarming, happy, sad and all the things inbetween Yep up and down like a yo yo I was during the reading of this one And boy did I cry great big fat tears at the end I m going to miss Caddy, Rosie, Suzanne et al.Caddy and Rosie have been friends forever despite going to different schools they have their own rhymes and rhythms and know each other inside and out Enter new girl Suzanne Rosie introduces her into the mix and things start to change Suzanne is bold, beautiful and funny but also damaged and Caddy gets caught up in it all in unexpected ways.The theme of female teenage relationships is examined within Beautiful Broken Things as are the subjects of mental health and abusive situations Sara Barnard captures it all pitch perfectly in a deeply engaging character study with some wonderfully resonant prose that enthralls these girls, their changing relationships and challenges upon each other are absolutely authentic and absolutely absorbing I simply could not put it down I went through the entire emotional spectrum whilst reading it and came away with a sense of both melancholy and happiness, in fact I d find it hard to separate one from the other right now.The author herself in her notes afterwards calls it A love story without a romance and that is spot on it is a tale of the deepest friendships we know the mutual support and sometimes, even if not intentional, thedestructive fallout of feeling things so deeply at a time we can be impulsive It shows us aftermath and consequences and is probably one of the most intense yet realistic stories I have read that speaks to mental health issues in young adults Suzanne is an incredible character, deeply sympathetic also in a lot of ways unlikeable yet you would want to know her Rosie and Caddy s deep seated friendship is truly a beautiful one that you absolutely believe in and even as the foundations falter you sense that it will never fall.Overall this was a simply remarkable story full of heart and soul and with characters that will remain with you, I cannot recommend it highly enough You know when you start one of those books that you just know, you have an inner gut feeling This is

we love come and go, Caddy That doesn t mean we loved them any less at the timeDefinitely didn t love this one quite as much as A Quiet Kinf of Thunder, but still a great contemporary book My main problem is that I read this book in the wrong time and didn t read the annotation before picking it up I thought it would be light and cute book with few heavier topics, but still a light read like the author s second book And it was not It was darker than I anticipated 3 5 starsPeople we love come and go, Caddy That doesn t mean we loved them any less at the timeDefinitely didn t love this one quite as much as A Quiet Kinf of Thunder, but still a great contemporary book My main problem is that I read this book in the wrong time and didn t read the annotation before picking it up I thought it would be light and cute book with few heavier topics, but still a light read like the author s second book And it was not It was darker than I anticipated This book deals with some heavy topics in a great and realistic way though and while I was not in similar situation to Suzanne s, it brough some bad memories for me at time I didn t need them to In a strange way, while my personality is very very different from Suzanne s, I do have some things here and there in common with her I m glad I read this book and I was 100% satisfied with the ending, though for a minute there I was afraid it would end in a way that would make me mad So I m really glad the author ended things as she did, loose as they may seem for some readers I also loved the female friendship and the fact that this book was a love story, but not the romantic kind I thought that all the friendships here were realistic Both light and dark There was no romance here and I m glad because it wouldn t fit the story I ve read in a few reviews saying that this book would ve been better if it was told from Suzanne s point of view instead of Caddy s And while I agree Suzanne was WAY better character than Caddy I actually didn t always like Caddy all that much , I m glad the author chose this narrative It s basically toldor less from an observer s point of view, from a girl who ison the sidelines of the story So while the story is from Caddy s POV, it still most of the time feels like it s about Suzanne And there s no denying that she s the best character of the book Caddy on the other hand, I had kind of like meh hate relationship with I don t mind the fact that she s naive all that much, I actually like when MC starts out as naive and grows through the story, learns some lessons, if it s done well But, there was something about the stark contrast between Caddy and Suzanne that bothered me sometimes Caddy was great friend to her most of the times not always , yes, but she also didn t understand Suzanne at all Sometimes I was just shaking my head as to how could she not get her that much She was supportive, but her priviledged life made her decidedly not understand any of the things Suzanne was dealing with One minute I was kinda liking her, and the next she proves how much of a shelterd and privileged life she led before Suzanne At times it felt like she was this rich girl treating Suzanne as this big adventure, not understanding her isssues Suzanne was going through this big thing, and yet it felt to me like Caddy sometimes whined about how nothing Significant happened to her and how boring that makes her No matter how naive she was, she should ve been fucking grateful that no tragedy happened in her 16 years of life and not whine about it But in the end I wouldn t change anything about how this book was told only Cady s personality a little It was a great debut which I will maybe pick up at a better time again to appreciate itthan I can now and maybe I will give it higher rating then.Trigger Warnings Focus on a side character abused by a family member in the past
