Me Since You by Laura Wiess

Me Since YouMe Since You by Laura Wiess
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although this is a YA read and I am middle aged, I'd say this book is for everyone.

You need to get your tissues at the ready, it truly does pull at the heart strings.

I didn't really know what to expect when I first started reading it, two young girls cutting school, meeting up with lads. But then when her Father comes into play and the realities of his working life and experiences, what he sees, what he has to deal with, its awful, its tragic.

There is a lot for this young girl to take on in life, suicide, death, depression. How can she survive this herself?

The author has done a remarkable job in writing this book, emotional? YES Tragic? YES, but how we react, how we overcome things in our life, its all there, and how we need others to help up continue.

**I was granted this book to read by Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via Net Galley for my honest review**

Laura Wiess captures the visceral emotion of a girl
;s journey from innocence to devastating loss and, ultimately, to a strange and unexpected kind of understanding;in this beautiful and painfully honest new novel.

Are there any answers when someone you love makes a tragic choice?

Before and After. That how Rowan Areno sees her life now. Before: she was a normal sixteen-year-old—a little too sheltered by her police officer father and her mother. After: everything she once believed has been destroyed in the wake of a shattering tragedy, and every day is there to be survived.

If she had known, on that Friday in March when she cut school, that a random stranger
 shocking crime would have traumatic consequences, she never would have left campus. If the crime video never went viral, maybe she could have saved her mother, grandmother
;and herselfrom the endless replay of heartache and grief.

Finding a soul mate in Eli, a witness to the crime who is haunted by losses of his own, Rowan begins to see there is no simple, straightforward path to healing wounded hearts. Can she learn to trust, hope, and believe in happiness again
