On The Menu Monday #7 Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott

Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott

Synopsis

Get this, I'm supposed to be starting a journal about "my journey." Please. I can see it now: Dear Diary, As I'm set adrift on this crazy sea called "life" . . . I don't think so.

It's been seventy-five days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her.

And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone now, and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't get it, anyway. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you.

They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault.

Amy's shrink thinks it would help to start a diary. Instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia.

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.


It's been seventy-five days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her. And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone, and Amy doesn't want to talk about it. No one knew Julia like she did. No one gets what life is without her.

No one understands what it's like to know that it's all your fault.

Amy's shrink thinks she should keep a journal but instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia. And as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past holds its own secrets--and that the present deserves a chance.

  1. First, I just saw this book at Barnes & Noble today. I thought about picking it up, but it was such a small book! I know I shouldn't buy books because of their size, but it was so tiny! And I don't mean tiny in pages, tiny in size! Lol.

    Btw, Micol Ostow commented you! Goldengirl was awesome, I can't wait to read Fashionista.

  3. This book sounds really good... it is not normally something I would even consider, the cover gives me a different idea of what is inside... but reading about it...

    cant always judge a book by its cover....

  5. This sounds interesting. Not a book I would normally be drawn to, but as I lost someone close to me recently, too, I am interested in stories about the same. Thanks for sharing this!
