Book Review Of “We Were Beautiful” By Heather Hepler @BlinkYABooks @Heather_Hepler
Thank you Blink YA Books for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
It was adorable, and sweet, and pulled on the heartstrings. This was book weighed pretty heavy on my heart, and if I could walk a mile in Mia’s shoes, I don’t think that I would want to. The poor little girl went through way too much for a girl her age.
It ran a little slow in some spots, but I think other aspects of the book make up for that. I think this is going to be a good read for young girls/young adults. This was a complicated family, and I think a lot of the population of readers can relate to that. Mia’s friends were a good mix of all types of personalities, very eclectic.
I love books that are dramatic, and deal with dysfunctional families. This book was heavy in the grief department, so if you are looking for something light, and fluffy, this is not it.
