Beautiful Broken Things – Sara Barnard




I was brave She was reckless We were trouble Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie – confident, funny and interesting. Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne’s past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be. But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realises, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

My Thoughts

I’m a Twitter addict and the amount of times I’ve seen Beautiful Broken Things mentioned on my timeline is more than I can count (which isn’t very high to be fair)  I just had to read this book.

Beautiful Broken thing is not about a boy and a girls relationship or anything to do with love well only friendship love. Rosie and Caddy have been best friends for years even though they go to different schools they’re still close which I found really cute. Anyway Suzanne joins Rosie’s school and they become friends and the whole complicated thing called friendship is sprung from there.

It may have taken me almost 2 weeks to read but it was one of the best 2 weeks. Beautiful Broken Things is exactly what I needed a book that was not about love but about the difficulties of life and how friendships may alter your outlook on it.

To be completely honest I think I was the broken thing by the end, it was just such a beautiful book and the different dynamics between all the characters was lovely.
