5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Ugly (and everything in between), 30 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heart-shaped Bruise (Paperback)
One word: WOW.

Somehow this book manages to turn the world on its head. As you question and judge the characters, you are forced to take a second look; at yourself, your views, society as a whole.

Each of the characters make you reassess what is normal and whether normal even exists. It is a reminder that ugly and beautiful exist side by side and more often than not, they merge into one blurry mess. It reminds us that we are all damaged, that we rip each other apart daily - whether intentionally or unintentionally.
The descriptions and imagery in the book are remarkable; fresh, poetic and original, all the while remaining true to Emily's voice.
