fiction and other writing

CollideCollide by J.C. Hannigan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of Harlow Jones, a vulnerable but mentally strong young girl. She has been abused and gang raped in the past. Her best friend Lauren has been killed in a car crash caused by Harlow’s then boyfriend.
Recovering from Lauren’s death in a new town, she has a relationship with her English teacher, whilst she is still seventeen and under age. There is a good back story and the novel is well-written.
I wasn’t keen on Harlow taking marijuana and it being treated as a minor misdemeanour. I also wasn’t keen that the English Teacher betrayed his position of trust and did so without much of a fight.
In spite of these issues I liked the writing style of the author. The main characters were well drawn and the pace of the book was good and held my interest.
I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.

    Oh, wow. The themes in this seem rather heavy, if I may say so. I find it difficult to read books in a smilier vein, difficult and exhausting. I admire your fortitude 🙂 Great review.
