Blog Tour / All The Good Things by Clare Fisher


Twenty-one year old Beth is in prison. The thing she did is so bad she doesn't deserve to ever feel good again.

But her counsellor, Erika, won't give up on her. She asks Beth to make a list of all the good things in her life. So Beth starts to write down her story, from sharing silences with Foster Dad No. 1, to flirting in the Odeon on Orange Wednesdays, to the very first time she sniffed her baby's head.

But at the end of her story, Beth must confront the bad thing.

What is the truth hiding behind her crime? And does anyone-even a 100% bad person-deserve a chance to be good?

MY REVIEW

This was an interesting read for me.  I haven't come across yet (I don't believe) a book that is written from the perspective this type of character.  You have a character who is in prison and obviously does not believe in herself and we are watching her trying to see some good in her life despite what she has been through and where she was.  

With this book I am glad that I didn't looking to the description or really know too much about it before I picked it up.  This book is definitely one of those that is best experienced when you know nothing from the beginning.  

What I loved the most in this book would have to be the character of Beth and following her story as she goes through these 'therapy sessions'.  I won't go into too much detail as to the why, where, who etc as I don't want to spoil the story. 

I would have loved this book to have been longer, went into more detail and delved into a bit more of Beth but at only 280 pages it a very emotional but good read.
