A review of Beautiful Broken Things by keespotatoes

A review of Beautiful Broken Things

Beautiful Broken Things is a book that will make you both laugh and cry, a moving story of self discovery, coming of age, mental health, and most importantly the complexities of friendship.
The story follows a girl called Caddy who is best friends with a girl called Rosie. That is, until Suzzane shows up, a mysterious, reckless and beautiful character.
Caddy had always been the quiet, sensible one. But now, she wants to become something more. As their friendship intensifies Suzzane's backstory of mental health troubles and abuse is revealed.
One of the things I loved about this book is the believable characters which allow the reader to really connect with them. I felt their feelings as of they were my own.
What differed this book from others was the raw and honest way they talked about mental health. There was absolutely no sugar-coating or glorifying sadness and depression. They said it like it was, which is actually not super common for YA books.
This book definitely has a touch of cliche (good girl gone bad kind of thing) but nonetheless it is a touching and gripping novel that I strongly recommend :)
