I really wanted to give this a 5 star rating, but I couldn't. I'm seriously disappointed at the length. I really, really, REALLY wished the author had taken the time to write more. I feel like the entire story was rushed(I started and I'm already half way through feeling, but not in a good way)and I would have loved to seen so much more about these characters, not just the brief introductions we get.
Okay...other than what I wrote above, I really did like this book. I can relate. A lot. I was born with a large port wine stain that covers most of the right side of my face and I had to deal with years of teasing because of this. As much as I loved school, I hated going because of how hurtful my classmates could be. I know exactly how Avery feels and what she had to endure. I love that Montgomery wrote this book. It's like a huge hug to anyone who's been bullied because of a physical deformity or because of their sexual orientation. I loved how the story came together and the very important lesson to not judge others because you don't know what's going on with them. I feel this is a book that a lot if not all teenagers need to read.
This book is wonderful book and is a wonderful reminder that we all need to be kind to one another.
Avery was a girl born with a cleft palate. Despite many surgeries she was left with a slight scar. As young children do, she was different and teased from an early age. Her nemesis was a girl named Harper. As they got older the bullying included not only Harper and her posse. They were unrelenting in their efforts to taunt Avery at every opportunity.
Fortunately for Avery her best friend, Dylan was a constant in her life, loyal and supportive. Dylan was also a victim of bullying for another reason, he was gay. Their support for each other was undoubtedly what made them who they were. Dylan’s humor was also quiet unexpected it but also made him so charming. The most amazing part of this book was that in spite of all these two were subjected to they were grounded and feisty.
The twist and turns of life most definitely played a part in the ending of Scarred. The most touching one being what a truly amazing young lady that Avery is.
In my opinion, I think that this book should be embraced by school systems as a means of discussing bullying.
'For those of us who come into the world different, we see it for what it really is.
What a great way to describe this book and peoples feelings. This is a quick, get to the point, read that will have you laughing, crying, or upset. The fact that this book is based on bullying, is the reason why I wanted to read it. I could relate and feel what the character was feeling. I was shocked by the outcome of the ending. It was just something I hadn't seen coming. The book flowed very nicely and is an unforgettable read that will remind readers that 'LIFE ISN’T ABOUT LABELS' and that karma can be really mean, but there is always a light at the end of the dark tunnel and there is people out there that no matter how much you hurt them, they will be there with you whether you want them to be or not.
I highly recommend this story for teens and older. It's a great reminder of what bullies and bullying can do to a person, but yet how you can overcome it and become stronger from it.
Scarred by Elizabeth Montgomery was heartbreakingly real. I went into this book knowing it was about bullying and even though this is a sensitive subject for me, I went in with an open mind and open heart.
Avery was born with a cleft lip, which she had surgery to correct, but that never stopped the teasing and the bullying. She has a gay best friend, Dylan –whom I LOVE- and for that, they are also bullied. Together though, they make you see the beauty in true friends and kindhearted people.
Then you meet Blake. A childhood friend that was lost to the girl that bullied Avery all those years. At first, I didn’t want to trust Blake. I felt like he was going to harm her. But quickly, you love and adore him.
Scarred reminds us that bullying is real, and that is doesn’t matter if it’s the way you dress, the people you like, the music you listen to, or the way you were born. This novella hits you right in the heart. I wish that it were longer, with more happiness, but I understand why it was this way. It was a great, emotional quick read and I look forward to more from Elizabeth Montgomery.
