A look into the more technical aspects of the book, I felt the format was good. I was worried with the main character having a stutter that it might affect the formatting and readability of the book, but it actually flows pretty well, and allows you to get a strong sense of the character and her struggles. I thought the dialogue was smooth, and really gave us a sense of each character in how they spoke, or at times, at how little they spoke. I enjoyed the subtle plot in this book from where we started to how we ended things, it was interesting, engaging, but not over the top filled with drama. The characters act in ways that you could imagine yourself or your friend acting. Feelings of betrayal, jealousy, anger, confusion, and kindness; that’s what real life is. All in all, this book was engaging, touching, and I would recommend it to friends. I felt the author made a strong point in this novel, and I really enjoyed seeing the character develop and change. I will be looking for more from this author in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!
Although Beverly considers Ella a friend, at times, she can’t help but feel overshadowed and dominated by her. I mean, if she didn’t want to get her boobs fitted into the “right” bra, then she shouldn’t have to.
Writing had a simple and easy flow, although, at times, the story lagged a bit with excessive, monotonous detail. But, nonetheless, readers will relate to the unspoken hopes, fears, and insecurities as shyly expressed by someone who doesn’t really know how to express them. You will root for the girl with the speech impediment as she navigates through work, relationships, and life.
Story was a little slow for my taste, but, overall, I deem it an okay read.
How Beverly is pushed to deal better with her stuttering problem is central to the story. But there are also a few good themes running throughout including some points made about setting boundaries between friends and the nature of friendship.
