When a relationship trespasses the boundaries of trust, the consequences are complex in this nuanced page-turner from “a formidable talent” (Booklist).If Coley Sterling’s best friend would stop hating her, if her dance-team captains would lighten up, if her friends would stop asking her about Reece, the geeky sax player she’s crushing on—then her life would be perfect. Right? After all, Coley’s stepdad is a successful attorney who gives Coley and her siblings everything, and her mother will stop at nothing to keep them all happy and safe—including having escaped ten years ago from the abuse of Coley’s real father. But Coley is keeping a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully crafted façade. Now, Coley and Reece are getting closer, and a decade’s worth of Coley’s lies are on the verge of unraveling—along with the life she thought she knew.

Had so much potential. In other words WHERE THE... IS THE REST OF MY BOOK? Seriously. It just stops, like, I don't know, the authors computer crashed and ate the ending, so she said "fuck it, I don't feel like typing all of that again. Print as it is". Which annoys me, because book could be awesome....
Rating: 2.5 StarsI have very mixed feelings when it comes to Live Through This, but my most overwhelming emotion is simply disappointment. There is no denying that Scott's sophomore novel is a struggle to get through, full of emotion and nuanced writing that truly brings to light the psychological h...
Liked it so much better than most of the YA novels that have come out over the past few years, but I thought it could have been better. It seemed to focus too much on the character's more petty problems, instead of on her biggest one, but maybe the author was trying to show how she processed what w...
I have mixed emotions about Live Through This. Overall, I really liked the book. There were some things that felt rushed and confusing, but I think the subject was tackled well. There were lots of layers to the book and it was worth it to keep peeling those things back. I would have liked to see...
