4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting perspective and believable story, 29 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Heart-shaped Bruise (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I liked the fact that this book was for once written from a very refreshing perspective. I haven't come across many books that were written in journal style by a female teenage inmate but it was interesting to read. I think Tanya Byrne definitely did a great job of creating a realistic atmosphere which is what gave this book a great base.
I think it is brilliantly written and I did warm to the main character - Emily Koll fairly quickly. I also enjoyed the perspective with narration by Emily but also a lot of dialogue.
All the characters were very well thought out which was great and the story had some good grit. It was frustrating not knowing what her actual crime was till the end of the book and there was a temptation to turn to the end but having resisted I was rewarded with getting to read about Emily's development as a person that seemed extraordinarily well written.
I was impressed with all the subjects this book tackled even if it only touched on most of the subjects but I was left disappointed with the end of the book.
I understand that this is the style of book that the author wanted to write but I am getting increasingly annoyed by books which don't have a real ending.
