Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing - Renée Carlino This is a quaint story about a girl trying to find her way after she loses her dad. I figure he means a lot to her, according to the way she acts and the hard time she has after his dead. It’s hard losing a parent. It’s even harder letting go of the things you think you need to have and need to do in your life. It’s even harder loving and trusting someone. That I get. But for the rest of it, I could not place myself in some of the drama the main character created. Now, before those of you that read the book attack me, I am not saying all of it. Some of it I understand just fine. But others? I can’t understand certain outbursts, especially if things are fine and even more so when she says something is ok, or she wants something to be a certain way and then go nitpicking on it. Maybe it’s me, but it was hard for me to see what the use was of that, other than create drama and hurt others and yourself. But it was nice to have someone who worked hard to achieve his dreams, even though sometimes I got really exasperated with him because of erratic outbursts. And it seemed a little “jumpy” to me. Trying to explain things, like “oh and he told her that sometime, when we were not watching”. It took away a little from the story imo. But all in all decent.

P.S. about the cover: I liked the first one, kind of whimsical to me, but the second one rocks!
