My Thoughts: Love You Hate You Miss You By Elizabeth Scott

What would you do if your best friend died? Not just died, but died while you were with them. It's an insane idea, one that is so freaky and so that you don't even want to think about it. But this is exactly what happens to 16 year old Amy in Elizabeth Scott's Love You Hate You Miss You.
It's been seventy-five days, and Amy still doesn't know how she can possibly exist without her best friend Julia, especially since it's her fault that Julia's dead. When her shrink tells her it would be a good idea to start a diary, Amy starts writing letters to Julia instead. But as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was"and the present deserves a chance, too.
I really liked this book. Even though I found it very very difficult to read, because it made me very very sad. Not once did I get annoyed with the main character (like I sometimes do). I felt sad for her, she was going thought a lot, at times I did wish that she would say what she was thinking and open up like she often wanted to. But then again that wouldn't have made for a very good book.
Amy wasn't perfect, she definitely had some issues. She fought through them and I really liked that. She made an effort. She tried. This is the first book by Elizabeth Scott that I have read and I have a few more that I would like to read, and I am looking forward to that. I was very pleased with this one.

So that's it. No more from me till after Wednesday.

Happy Reading.
