Sweet So Fragile wasn't perfect, but it was creative, original, well-written and filled with complex characters and an unforgettable plot.

I am really glad I was given a chance to read Sweet so Fragile by Margaret Chatwin. Had I not been given the chance I otherwise might have missed out and never run by such a talented author! She is now my newest favorite author. Her writing style reminds me alittle bit of Jodi Picoult who is another one of my favorite authors. Margaret Chatwin has an natural ability to put raw emoitions on paper and physically make her readers feel them! From page one I was hooked and had a hard time putting the ...more

The description on the FirstReads giveaway drew me in so I decided to enter. I enter a decent number of giveaways through FR so it's hard to hope for one or two, I just sit back and wait for fate to bring a book to me. I got nervous with fate when this came.
I haven't had much luck with self-published books. It seems like I find the books written by people who want to be authors but aren't meant to be. Wanting isn't being. I can want to be a singer. If I can't actually sing I'm not a singer am I? Self-publishin

I found that I wanted to be more like Shara and I rooted for Jorry and Chris.Th ...more

I got this book as a Goodreads giveaway. I really enjoyed this, it was a quick read. The characters were well described and drew you into their lives. The situation described in the story was realistic enough to make you feel the emotions of the characters. All in all a good book that I would recommend to my friends. I hope to read more of Margaret Chatwin's books in the future.

love it. I absolutely love how much emotion Margaret puts into her characters. I find myself caring so much for this family and wishing i could step in the book and make things work out better for them. There are people i want to slap, people i want to hug, and people who just need chewed out! Its very gripping and is hard to put down.

I read Sweet So Fragile in one day – I just could not put it down. The emotions conjured are so strong, I found myself wanting to comfort Jace or throttle Jorry. The animosity between father and daughter is so real I had to check myself that I wasn’t back in my teenage years. Sweet So Fragile has a little romance, a little heartbreak, a bit of drama, and plenty of action.
From the very first page, I was drawn into the lives of the characters. Margaret’s character development is very three-d

The story overall was pretty good. I once read one of her interviews where she said she'd never like to live in one of her books... Now I'm understanding why. It seems that a popular theme in her books are the tough things that one would like to pretend don't really exist but tend to be the reality in people's lives.

Characters: Sweet So Fragile seems to revolve around three characters- they are also the narrato/>Characters:

I did enjoy the book, but not as much as I thought I would. I found it hard to keep my attention on it, and I really cannot point my finger as to why. It was a good book and well-written, and maybe I just was not in the mood for this kind of book. I will probably give it another shot in the future. I think my main problem was that I was not crazy about the daughter's character, as I found her annoying lol.

I won this book thru and I love it. I absolutely love how much emotion Margaret puts into her characters. I find myself caring so much for this family. Its very gripping story and it was hard to put down. I read it in two sittings. This story has LOTS of action, Some romance and a lot of drama but if your into that kind of book. Go get this book you wont regret it!
Despite all the spelling errors and grammar mistakes, Sweet so Fragile was an incredible book. I would recommend that you should read this on a rainy day. I also recommend this to anybody in need for SAT or ACT prep.

It took me a long time to finish this book, which I won in a give-away. I did not like it much. I liked it at the beginning, but quickly got disenchanted, and it was not what I expected. I found the characters annoying and most of the adults immature and one-dimensional. What's with a parent constantly getting in yelling and screaming matches with a child? In the end, everything turns out OK, and I'm not sure if I found this a relief or even more annoying.

I wasn't expecting this book to mostly be about the struggles with a rebellious teen. it was really sad most of the time and very cringe worthy. some of the charscters' names were bizarre. decent book for the $2.99 price tag.

I think I was a writer before I could even write. I can remember lying awake in my bed as a small child dreaming up characters and adventures for them to take. When I reached the age of thirteen, (which was a million years ago) my imagination could no loner be kept within the confines of my own head and I began to write them down. Many a summer I laid out in the back yard on the lawn chair with a ...more
