Get this, I'm supposed to be starting a journal about "my journey." Please. I can see it now: Dear Diary, As I'm set adrift on this crazy sea called "life" . . . I don't think so.
It's been seventy-five days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her.
And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone now, and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't get it, anyway. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you.
They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault.
Amy's shrink thinks it would help to start a diary. Instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia.
But as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was—and the present deserves a chance too.
Everyone has that best-friend that is one of the main parts in their world or IS their world. For Amy her world was Julia. Is there life after Julia? How do you move past killing your best-friend? You could feel the hurt in Amy. Her emotions just spilled right off the pages. There was so much truth in this book. I enjoyed all the letters that were written for a way to still communicate to Julia and have a way of release. All of the character stand out and are so unforgettable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Elizabeth Scott really weaved a heartfelt story that mesmerized and latched on to your heart and wouldn't let go. I finished this in one sitting. I love being wrapped in a book that it feel as if the world is so far away.
I am sure you have not had enough..Me either! Check out Elizabeth Scott Here!
