All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
"My mother always started the story by saying, 'well, she was born in the backseat of a stranger's car,' as though that explained why Wavy wasn't normal." ~ 1%
Wavy trusts no one, not even her own parents. She is the daughter of a drug dealer so accustomed to keeping her mouth shut. Raising her little brother also forces Wavy to be more responsible and grow up before her time. To get away and temporarily escape reality, Wavy gazes at the constellations. One night while focused on the starry night sky, she witnesses a motorcycle accident and begins an unlikely friendship with one of her father's thugs, Kellen. As Wavy grows older, her friendship with Kellen grows amidst tragedy.
Have you ever read a book and once finished could not recall any significant story line? If so, you would understand my review of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. I cannot even explain why the title is what it is. The synopsis sounded really good but the story fell flat and is far from memorable. One of the aspects may disturb some readers but for other reasons stated, my suggestion is to pass on this book.
Happy Pub Day! All the Ugly and Wonderful Things is available as of today.
