Sophie found me on Twitter (it's so good isnt it?) and asked me if I would review her book, me being a book blogger accepted and as it was free on Amazon I didn't see any reason not too. She didn't give me any kind of deadline which was amazing and her blurb was very interesting, definitely pulled me in and made me want to read more.
If you would like a more in depth review that includes more information (spoilers) please leave a comment!
Sometimes you don’t realise the mess you’ve made until you hit rock bottom. My life is a car crash, and the only person I can blame is myself. I was the reason that my parents broke up, and I ruined my own chances of happiness. I’m not proud of what I’ve done, and worst of all I hate the person I’ve become. My name is Jude Reed, and when I arrived, I was helpless and alone.
Then I met Tiffany and everything changed.
This book starts off with a car crash, that kills the main character. That in itself is so different from other books that I've read and was a strange way to go, but it worked. Jude ends up letting himself die after a quick conversation with his Granddad who then disappears. Jude then has to find out what to do.
Tiffany is a great character. She turns up and forces Jude to be friends with her. Although neither of them know why they have been thrown together, by the end of the book they've made the most of their time and become quite close friends. Before that, Tiffany is determined to make Jude change his mind about wanting to die. She frequently makes him watch things from his past and they both learn things about Jude's life that neither of them knew before.
This story has a lot of issues that are addressed; health issues, same sex couples, feeling lost and depressive. It's wonderful to see these things some together in a story and it be easily readable as well as teaching about how people feel when they have these issues.
I loved this story and it was such an easy read. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone that wanted to read a story from a different genre.
