review: a really awesome mess

A Really Awesome Mess by Trish Cook

4 awesome mess stars....

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review...

this book follows 2 P.O.V's one being Justin, a teenage boy who feels his dad does not want him because he moved 800 miles away and when it is visit time he finds someone to take him. Also, the first time he gets to have "fun" time with a girl, a stranger, at best he gets caught by his dad. now, here is the fun part. Justin tried to kill himself. taking over the counter pain med, yup like Advil. now he is shipped off to heartland academy were he can work on his issues...

The other M.C. is a girl named Emily. She is a mixed child who got adopted when she was a baby. She feels she doesn't fit in because she is from china, and the rest of her family look out of a American catalog. OH, I forgot to mention that her mom and dad got a miracle baby the minute she came home. Emily also had her first love. it ended badly and she started not eating. It worked with her boyfriends ex-girlfriend and she wanted him back. Well, this not eating got her put in Heartland academy to work on her issues...That was if she had any..

I understand the mixed reviews with this book, but also i find it pretty funny. It is like normal teenage issues. A teenage boy who wants to experience sex, and has anger issues, and a suicidal attempt. he will meet a group of friends at this group home, and together they will help each other with their issues. Not to mention some drama, field trips, and a problem that will have even you thinking about how to fix it.

Emily does have an eating disorder... get over it. if you had one before you shouldn't even be reading this book because you know it would be a trigger so, don't take it out on the author...also, Emily has real issues. Her new group of friends with finally make her see her issues, and she will help her new friends with theirs, and also cause some trouble in the mist of things..

this book was a really good read, and i can't wait to see what else this author brings to the table..
