Live Through This free read Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB From the outside Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal whatever that means It’s not perfect her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time but Coley’s adorable sweet crush Reece helps distract her Plus she has a great family to fall back on. This review was originally published on Clear Eyes Full ShelvesThere s something thrilling and even a bit nerve wracking about reading the second novel by an author whose debut landed suarely on my True Book Love shelfIt s thrilling because of the anticipation of hoping that book magic will happen all over again Mindi Scott s 2010 debut Freefall is a book I love dearly Laura s review pretty much nails it so I have been eagerly anticipating Live Through This It received a starred review on Kirkus and the pre publication buzz has been extremely positive When I saw it on the shelf at Barnes Noble and noble a whole week early I suealed far too loudly and sprinted to the register breathlessly explaining to the BN employee who rang me about about how much I ve been looking forward to this book and how it s not actually out until October 2nd and how I ve got to know Mindi after I read Freefall and how it got a Kirkus star and isn t it all just so exciting Needless to say the poor guy thought I was a nutjob That evening I cracked open the book at around 1000pm intending to just read a couple chapters after a stressful day and head to bed Almost instantly I was gripped by the harrowing which is how Stephanie Perkins described it in the cover blurb which could not be apt story of Coley a 15 year old in the Seattle suburbs whose life seems perfect on the surface but underneath is anything but For years Coley s kept a secret maintaining the image of the perfect dance team girl When she starts kind ofsort of dating Reece and he winds up spending a couple of days with her family on their ski trip to Whistler BC and Coley s carefully partitioned life starts to unravel I don t know how to fix this or if it can be fixed There s too much to say Too much I don t know how to sayFor over half of my life I ve been pretending spoiler removed Reece keeps trying to put the pieces back together without having any idea what s causing me to breakI couldn t set Live Through This Down once started reading Despite needing to be up early the next day I stayed up past 100 am because I was so gripped by Coley s story overwhelmed by a feeling of dread The story is carefully crafted so I really didn t know for sure who Coley s abuser is until halfway through the book Sure there were signs but I didn t want it to be true That s the beauty of Live Through Through This Coley s abuser is someone she cares about someone with whom she shares a history I generally avoid books that appear to be issue books especially in young adult fiction They often seem too cut and dry with the bad guys always seeming like pure evil And yes their actions are terrible However the actual relationships are complicated Mindi shines a light on how unsimple the subject of abuse really is She wrote a letter that was published in review copies and on her website about how the way abuse is usually portrayed and how she wanted to show something different in Live Through This This novel achieves that letting Coley s story be Coley s experience in an authentic nuanced manner Live Through This also has some light funny moments that shine especially the scenes between Coley and her best buddy Noah as do the sweet moments between Coley and Reece as they test the waters of the beginnings of a relationship This might be shaping up to be our best day ever now he says as we siver against each otherThat s what I wanted to hear I look up at him Really This is better than giraffes and ice cream You don t think soWith his face this close to mine he s just eyes a nose and cheeks that are so pink form the cold and upturned lips I smile back so big it almost hurts I m going to have to think about that Sure Let me know what you decide This multi dimensional exploration of Coley s life makes Live Through This stand out there is light along with the darkness in Coley s life That s a critical point that distinguishes this book because Coley is than what has happened to her than the guilt that follows herUltimately Live Through This is a very different book than Freefall but there s a common thread that runs through them both in terms of figuring out the path forward It s hard not to make the comparison especially since they re set in the same town and there are two Seth references and Rosetta and Kendall mentions Like with Seth the path forward isn t easy and Coley s decisions have conseuences and the emotions are so real Now I m sorry I am so so sorry A sob escapes my lips and Reece scoots closer I throw my arms around him rest my face against his chest It s okay he says rubbing my back as I cry You re okay He s so wrong and he has no idea It s totally unfair for me to put him through this I know that it is Still I keep holding on I keep soaking his shirt with my tears I can t make myself stopThere are so many little moments in Live Through This like this one Moments that made me know that something is going to change but I never felt confident in how they d change until the very last page FNL Character Rating Pending a consultation with Laura our FNL Character Rating Expert who is inconveniently out of town and hasn t been able to read the book yetDisclosure Mindi and I became friends when I Twitter stalked her after I read Freefall a couple of years ago and Laura and I hung out with her when she was in Portland earlier this year Regardless of that this review is my sincere opinion Initial Reaction Well that was an intense one sitting read
