really liked it

I can tell you this, Cat Clarke's voice is very compelling, very powerful and strong.

The only reason I gave this book a lower rating is predictability of the plot. Once you figure everything out, the book drags and drags until finally! you have that big revelation in the end.

However, you can feel Grace, you live in her skin and you understand emotional turmoil this girl has lived in since her dad died. She is damaged, traumatised and the only way for her to release all these complex overpowering emotions inside her is to cut herself and to keep the facade of reckless debauchery everyone else sees in her.

All the teenage traits are here - the endless drama, extreme intensity and belief that nothing is ever going to happen to you, that inner hope that you are immortal. I actually loved Grace's voice and her take on the world.

Again, I have to admire the darkness and grittiness of British YA fiction. It seems to be right into your face, no smooth corners, no quarter given, - and I love that everything is so out in the open, so rough.

If you like this, read Tom Pollock, Rachel Ward and C.J.Daugherty. Recommended.
