Book Review / Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott

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.

My Review

What I loved about this story...
I don't know why I left it so long to pick up this book.  I had bought this a while ago and its one of those ones that I was really excited to read but for some reason or another I had not really picked up yet.  I am so glad I finally decided to read it, I loved this book.  It is a really great emotional read.

I hadn't realised how emotional this story would be.  Following Amy on her journey of coming to terms with the things that have happened to her was a roller coaster ride to say the least.  I liked how you didn't find out everything about the story all at once, there were definitely a few twists and turns in this story that were very surprising.  

There is an element of romance in this story, not a big part of the story but it features partly.  I liked the way this was handled and it felt real. 

This story deals with some very hard-hitting issues and it was very intense following Amy's story.  The story definitely got a lot deeper than I had been expecting but I enjoyed following the story. 

What I am not fond of with this story... 
Absolutely nothing!

About the Author

Hey there, I'm Elizabeth. I write young adult novels. I live just outside Washington DC with my husband and dog, and am unable to pass a bookstore without stopping and going inside.

All right, and I can't leave without buying at least one book.

Usually two. (Or more!)
