I was not sure as I started reading if this would be a book for me, or one that I would be able to recommend to my daughter, who is a member of the target audience for this book. I focused too much on the fact that she tries to take her life, and that she was a broken character. I usually don't connect with these types of characters or stories very well, but Circelli was able to pull me in and hook me!
This book is about taking your life back! Evangeline's struggle and her connection with the animals at the reserve help to pull her back into a life that she feels is worth living. There are highs and lows in her struggle, as it is in real life, and I found myself living on an emotional roller coaster with her as she works through her time at the preserve. By writing this in the third person, the reader is able to see the puzzlement of the others around Evangeline as they try to help this injured teen. This gives a realistic quality to the story, for don't we all struggle to understand the motivations behind the actions taken by those nearest to us, especially when those actions seem to be unhealthy?
As you read this, not only will you need tissues ready, but have room around you, because you will want to punch the air and shout, "Yes!"! Read this with a family member, and great discussions will ensue!
Awesome story! I would love to find out the next step in Evangiline's story.
How distracted did I get?
Fragile Creatures is an emotionally awesome coming of age story. Evangaline is strong. Stronger emotionally than most characters I've read. I want to sweep up and take care of her. I'm baffled with what she goes through, though I do know it happens…wow, just wow. Caster is an amazing hottie mctottie who is supportive and nurturing. Ash, I would love to smack her upside the head and hope someone does. I was so wrapped up in the story I threw one of my frozen meals (chicken cordon bleau pasta bake) I had on hand from being laid up to cook instead of cooking up some chicken. From beginning to end I was hooked on Evangeline's story
Completely heart-wrenching, powerful, sob-inducing, and incredible. I've now found another favorite author. I know this type of novel is outside of Kristina Circelli's norm, but she did a fantastic job and I will now follow her writing to the ends of the earth. Is it weird that my harshest critique is that the girl on the cover has on too much make-up to match the Evangeline I have in my head? I seriously loved every page of this book. The story deals with some tough topics, so I wouldn't recommend it for readers under the age of 14 or so, but Circelli writes about those life-altering events beautifully and makes sure your emotions get resolution. The only issue I had with the writing was the constant change of narrative. It was sometimes hard to follow whose thoughts I was reading, because it would change mid-paragraph. I would've like to see better transitioning between first-person narratives to make it easier for the reader to follow.
