This is all probably just some kind of postwar flip-out.

So...this book has essentially trivialized PTSD (a fucking postwar "flip-out"?), and will soon trivialize domestic abuse and mental issues (among other things)?

WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THIS IS OKAY.

I. DO NOT. LIKE. THIS. BOOK.

Almost an entire chapter without any offensive comments or actions, and then this happens:

"I'm not going to pretend to be some faggot crybaby like you just because that's what everybody wants."

Should have seen that one coming.

I can say with certainty that this is one of the worst books I've read this year. Must. Get it. Over with.

Let's see...in three pages:

1. The MC has revealed herself to be a rape apologist;

2. The brother of the murdered girl said he doesn't think the alleged murdered killed his sister because, and I quote, he is a pansy;

3. and lastly, slut-shaming! Kippy: "So what, everyone's hooked up with [her]. She's like some kind of blonde rabbit in heat."

[...] I'm not saying that Ruth brought it on herself for being huggable, or anything, just that the whole Colt thing [Colt being Ruth's ALLEGED MURDERER] makes sense to me now on more than one level.

If this book just excused an alleged murderer and maybe rapist for doing such because the girl who was murdered and maybe raped was HUGGABLE...

Ceilidh I hated this book for that reason as well as a few more moments of fuckery that pop up.

:(


Blythe Why in the world would anyone even THINK it's okay to use these issues for laughs? And to degrade the severity of such issues? Awful.

(I'm writing a YA about military PTSD but it's no laughing matter.) They make jokes out of it in the novel??? :(

And make jokes about domestic abuse, and the mentally ill.
