“Love hurts … but should it hurt this much?
Reeling from her mum’s sudden departure, Anna finds the comfort she needs in her blossoming relationship with Will. He’s handsome and loving, everything Anna has always dreamt of. He’s also moody and unpredictable, pushing her away from her friends, her music. He wants her to be his and his alone. He wants her to be perfect.
Anna’s world is closing in.But threatening everything is a dark secret that not even Will can control…
Eve Ainsworth’s gripping second novel is a pitch-perfect exploration of love at its most powerful, addictive and destructive.“
The schedule will be at the bottom of this post. Make sure you check out those other fab blogger’s who are joining in!
Anna is basically a teenage girl who’s fallen in love and kind of gets wrapped up in a toxic relationship. She’s torn in two mentally and emotionally. On the one hand, she loves Will and really can’t find a fault in him, even defending his disgraceful actions against her. On the other hand, she knows he isn’t right in what he’s doing and basically feels like she’s got to give up everyone to be with him and him alone.
I think the plot is really powerful and informative to people like me, who have never experienced anything remotely like what Anna goes through. It’s actually eye-opening and shows how addictive a toxic relationship can be. Sometimes we like things that are bad for us and our own health, and we don’t even realise how bad that thing is. Anna doesn’t realise that Will shouldn’t treat her the way he does. Will doesn’t let Anna be her own person and that’s when it becomes toxic, when Anna starts to lose herself and things that define her, like music and friends.
I feel like the book is written in a teenage perspective really well. The teenage voice and feelings definitely come through spot on in my opinion. Even the school run is perfectly true and school life in general. Fantastic writing and feelings are portrayed so well with body language and not just Anna and Will’s thoughts.
“EYE-OPENING AND POWERFUL”
I highly recommend this book for the simple reason it is a quick, easy but powerful read. Get your hands on the newest Eve Ainsworth book ASAP.
