Blurb:

They promised Meredith nine years of safety, but only gave her three.

Her father was supposed to be locked up until Meredith turned eighteen.

She thought she had time to grow up, get out, and start a new life.
But Meredith is only fifteen, and today her father is coming home from prison.

Today her time has run out.

 

Such a Pretty Girl – Review

Wow. What a book.

SUCH A PRETTY GIRL hit me with all the feels! Life for Meredith is something that occurs all too often in real life. It’s eerie how accurate this book portrays this subject matter.

I loved this book in all its gritty glory and its creepy moments. Meredith is a strong, super amazing woman. At 15, she has experienced something no one should, especially not from a loved one.

This book makes you feel disgusting, and oh so angry. I hadn’t even gotten to chapter two before my anger was coming to the surface. If I’m being honest, I read the first two sentences and just got the sick feeling in my stomach. I ugly cried.

The writing of this story is fast-paced. It takes place over a few days. I was instantly hooked from the beginning. It didn’t let up. Each page turned was more disturbing than the last, and it was harsh. My heart went out to Meredith (and the others). Wiess took a gross subject, gave it a story, and compelled readers to feel uncomfortable. It’s beautifully written and packs so much truth into a fictional book.

 

Side note —

There was only one thing I didn’t like about the book: the mother. I just can’t with her. As having been through a similar situation, she should not be a villain either. I hated her. I realize sometimes it is the truth. There are parents out there who do that. I am so thankful my parents were never like that.
