Review || All Ugly and Wonderful things- Bryn Greenwood

Synopsis: As the daughter of a meth dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents. Struggling to raise her little brother , eight year old Wavy is the only responsible “adult” around. She finds peace in the starry Midwestern night sky above the fields behind her house. One night everything changes when she witnesses one of her father’s thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold, wreck his motorcycle. What follows is a powerful and shocking love story between two unlikely people that asks tough questions, reminding us of all the ugly and wonderful things that life has to offer.


Review: This Book has a very beautiful cover and that is the main reason I picked up the book. I am going to be honest it was a bad case of judging the book by the cover.

The story is about young Wavy and her life and her relationship with a much older guy Kellen. However beautifully the book was written I cannot ignore how uncomfortable the whole book made me. I left it halfway thinking I would DNF it. Since I have never left a book halfway, I went back to it after a few days and completed it. The ending was a little bearable to read so it got a little better.

I just don’t like this weird relationship and just how toxic the whole book with toxic relationships and such. Hence I did not like the book much.

The only good part was it great style of writing which alternated between different people and kept it a little interesting. My favourite character would be Reneé who was the perfect friend.

So if you’re into such books and are comfortable reading about it, this would be great!
