Sad Girls review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB Lang Leav ñ 3 characters read Sad Girls School is almost out for Audrey but the panic attacks are just beginning Because Audrey told a lie and 35 StarsI haven t decided yet if this is the most brilliant novel or the worst so it gets a happy medium rating I actually finished this book a few weeks ago hoping that some time and distance would help me decide on my opinion but it hasn t I feel the same waySad Girls on one level is brilliantly written it depicts the emotional depth of complex life issues and relationships so beautifully so thoughtfully so truthfully that you can t help but fall right into the world At the same time the writing can be choppy some scenes are completely boring and at others you have no idea what is going on but perhaps that is the point If so the book heads towards brilliant again this is why I m having such a hard timeFirst to the plot overall really tough and touching The emotional roller coaster is intense and doesn t let up Sad Girls deals with a lot of important and sensitive issues suicide young love break ups depression and death generally I feel that overall the development of the plot and story was very well done and that ending very powerful Didn t see it coming at all and definitely shines a light on the complexity of human relationships and how complex and sometimes even messed up love can be Friendship is another strong theme which was great to read about as well as the issues surrounding parental relationships super intense at times between Audrey and her motherHmmmm characters Audrey was fascinating but she did grind on my nerves at times There was something about her that just annoyed me Maybe not her if I m being honest but her when she was talking to Rad Their conversations especially the ones of perhaps we are just characters in a book was cute the first time then got on my nerves by the third time Also the whole depiction of the publishing process seemed way off to me even with my limited experience Audrey and Rad don t see each other for a FEW MONTHS and not only has Rad written a book but it has been published and won awards Wut In a I ll repeat it FEW MONTHS All those things just fell into place at once I think not I enjoyed the second part of the book a lot I m trying to be vague so as not to spoil but let s just say that Audrey does some soul searching and it was wonderful to read about that processI ve enjoyed Lang Leav s poetry in the past she is super talented and amazing and I m very curious to read Sea of Strangers which is releasing soon but Sad Girls just fell in the middle for me I liked parts really really really enjoyed those parts but then felt very frustrated with others I will say though this would make an absolutely fantastic filmtv series it would adapt soooooooo well raises eyebrow to Australian television networks I have thrown the gauntletWould I recommend reading this book Yes and no If you like Leav s work already then absolutely yes give it a whirl If you re looking for an evocative and though provoking story with a few potholes then also yes If you like perfection from you emotional books then I m afraid you might want to keep on browsing the shelves
