Her boyfriend's, ah, less-than-stellar reaction to the news.
Dave. Ah, Dave. I don't think I've ever hated a character as much as I hate Kate's boyfriend, a wannabe rockstar and lead singer of Dave & the Glories. Even before Dave finds out about Kate's potential illness it's clear he's a jerk, dismissing Kate's organising of the band's tour as "making a couple of phone calls", when clearly she'd worked her butt off. I thought after the way he broke up with her he couldn't sink any lower.
But he did.
I won't say how due to spoilers, but I was reading this on my Kindle and had to physically restrain myself from throwing it across the room. (That scene was one of the THREE TIMES times I cried reading this book.)
On the other hand, there are some truly wonderful characters, including Lachlan -- probably the sweetest book boyfriend ever -- Stacey, and even Kate's dad, as ill as he is. His neurodegenerative disease actually gives him a much more cheerful outlook on life, something that Kate and her mother slowly come to appreciate. Between Lachlan and her dad, Kate learns to live in the moment and appreciate what's happening now rather than being terrified of the future.
I have all of the love for this book.
So what's it about, I warn you, I'm going to be deliberately vague because you need to experience this story as blind as possible. Kate has her life planned out, but what do you do when your perfect existence, everything you took for granted - boyfriend, family, career aspirations, health all come crashing down around her, leaving her lost, scared and alone, with no light and the end of the tunnel?
Lauren weaves a story of harrowing pain and tragedy, a world so dark at times that it left me as the reader feeling alone and distraught. The Problem With Crazy is a story that despite absolutely destroying me, in ways I didn't even know was possible, ultimately healed me, it's message, life affirming. Weeks on and I can't stop thinking about McKeller's words, her characters, the world she created. Breath taking is the only way I can find to describe the sheer beauty of TPWC.
I have to admit I was a little wary when I started the book for two reasons: it's not often I get hooked by a YA/NA story and the other reason being the author is also my editor. So what if I didn't like the book? How would I tell her the reason for my 2 star rating? Turns out these were all unfounded fears because this book blew my mind.
I got immediately sucked into the story and couldn't let go. I just couldn't put it down, not even when I started crying, fat, ugly tears and sobs. Seriously, I was sobbing! The story struck a chord and it tugged at my heartstrings. It's such a powerful and emotional journey, that I still haven't been able to get over it.
There is a part (and I won't say what, otherwise I'll spoil the fun) where I had to stop to send a message to the author telling her I was thinking about unfriending her-but even then, I couldn't stop reading. Even through the tears and the sobs I still managed to smile at the sweetness of the story.
I love Kate. I haven't loved a teenager heroine in a book since Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I have to say Kate has definitely earned the top spot in my best teenager character chart. She's fantastic. Funny, sweet, strong and fragile at the same time. She's the person I'd like to have been when I was eighteen.
Dave, Kate's boyfriend, is the perfect jerk, and Lauren managed to depict him perfectly. I found myself wanting to slap him every time he waltzed back into the story.
Lachlan. Well. Lachlan. I guess no words would ever describe how I feel for him. He's simply ADORABLE. And that's not even enough.
Kate and Lachlan's has to be THE cutest meet-cute in history.Read more ›
