Release Day Review: Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard

I was brave
She was reckless
We were trouble

Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie – confident, funny and interesting.

Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne’s past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be.

But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realises, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

5 Words: Friendship, abuse, rebellion, school, family.

Well, that was pretty heartbreaking.

When I was reading this book, I couldn't help but think that I was reading something significant. This isn't your usual story about teen romance. Instead it's about all of the trials and tribulations of friendship. And that friendship was so real, so complicated, that I couldn't help but smile and laugh and cry along with the ups and downs.

The lack of romance in this book was refreshing. The head-on tackle of mental illness and various social stigmas was outstanding. Overall it was a fantastic read, and I couldn't put it down.

I loved how friendship and family was explored, how rebellion reared its head and was dealt with.
