Andi's ABCs

I'm a shopping fanatic. On any given day you will hear about me buying clothes or bags or shoes or books.
Sisters in Sanity - Gayle Forman First I must start by saying that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Gayle Forman. Anything that woman writes I am right there reading it. She has a way with words that just puts you right in the moment with the characters. She knows her subjects and she knows her readers I to me she is a master at connecting the two of them together and that is hard to find in a good author. With that being said I must admit I wasn't 100% crazy about Sister's in Sanity. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed it. I loved Brit and Jed and V and Cassie and Bebe and Martha. I loved how the girls relied on each other for support when they were thrown into this horrible situation where they had no control. I loved the friendship that was formed between the girls when they needed someone to trust unable to trust their own family or adult around them. I loved Jed and Brit's relationship. Actually I more then loved it. There was something special between them from the get-go. Between the flashbacks and real time stuff I was very much smitten. But honestly the end of the story is what killed it for me. I HATED the end.

This was a solid 4 star book the whole entire reading experience. I was excited to be back in a Forman world and getting back into her head. And then I got to the last few chapters and I was so disappointed. I mean I like the happily ever after aspect of books myself, but the neat, all tied up in a bow on a silver platter aspect of this one really bothered me. For a book that was pretty great up until this point it let me down. Life isn't all neat and tidy and neither should the ending of a book that is about girls being sent to a "treatment facility" for behavioral problem that are non-existent. I felt like it was a cop-out and that bummed me out.

But I honestly would never discourage someone from reading it because Forman really is amazing and so are her characters. Definitley check it out because the good outwayed the disappointment for sure.
