Review: Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott

Released: April 27, 2010
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rated: YA
Buy Amazon | Book Depository

Get this, I'm supposed to be starting a journal about "my journey." Please. I can see it now: Dear Diary, As I'm set adrift on this crazy sea called "life" . . . I don't think so. It's been seventy-five days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her. And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone now, and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't get it, anyway. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault. Amy's shrink thinks it would help to start a diary. Instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia. But as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was—and the present deserves a chance too.

What I thought:


This was an emotional roller coaster. It wasn't a happy feel good novel. Lately, I have been reading some pretty serious YA. This was serious and depressing. But I think it was well written and a fantastic story. I like to see teens portrayed as they are, not just the good stuff, but the trouble the get into as well.

Amy was such a hard character to hate. Even as she hated herself. I didn't blame her and felt so sorry for her when Julia's mom did. Even more, I'm glad that despite her wanting to separate herself from everyone, that she was able to connect with someone, even if it wasn't who she though it might be.

This is the kind of novel everyone should read. Granted not everyone should love it, but I tend to really like the ones that tell a real story. It doesn't get more real than this and all the emotions, the pain, the grief is real. And the ending was beautiful. Sad, but very fitting. I found the ending to be just what the book needed.

I'm glad you posted on this book, I've not read it yet but am a big fan of Elizabeth Scott! It's good sometimes to not read about a "perfect" life, bring me some real life anytime :)

Thanks for your great review. I recently read Elizabeth Scott's As I Wake (coming in September), and am a new fan of hers. This sounds good. I've added it to my TBR list.
