An unfortunate side effect of reading LITTLE RED LIES in one sitting is that I have no notes on my thoughts An upside is that I was completely immersed in the lives of the characters in LITTLE RED LIESThe story is begins at the end of WWII when Rachel’s brother returns from the war He’s changed in ways that the family won’t realize until it’s almost too late Plus he’s a complete dick now to his familyI’m impressed by the subtle things in the narrative that broadcasts the lives of the other characters without Rachel noticing It really felt like the other characters lived their lives independently from the Rachel’s plot There were hints of things that happened in early chapters that made an impact on Rachel’s life later on Some of them were so cleverly hidden that I felt broadsided by the plot twists HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT COMINGI never felt like the dual story lines ever connected in the end I don’t remember the book saying if the letters written from Jamie Rachel’s brother were ever read or if they were destroyedor whatever I really wish that the story ended with a scene connecting the letters with RachelHowever the ending is poignant and beautiful This isn’t a HEA but those looking for a HEA won’t be shell shocked Be prepared for a fair amount of crying yelling at Rachel and Jamie and reading until the wee hours of the morning It wasn’t a perfect book yet this book will leave a mark on your heart heh bookmark get it

Ntically fall for someone completely inappropriate Worries about her veteran brother's failing health and repugnance at her mother's unexpected and unwanted pregnancy drive her to seek solace from a seemingly sympathetic but self servi. The only reason I'm giving this book 2 stars is because I liked the characters except for Rachel It is so incredibly difficult to read a book when you just hate the main characterRachel McLaren is the most selfish protagonist that I've ever read about She doesn't care about anybody except for herself Rachel doesn't care that her brother is dying her mother is depressed or about her friend Hazel's home life No she cares about how she embarrassed herself at a play and how much she's attracted to her teacher Rachel believes that she's a slave even though the most she's asked to do is wash dishes set the table and take care of the baby occasionally Not to mention that Rachel is over dramatic petulant and an all around brat I read through the book hoping that Rachel's character would develop After all at the end of the novel she's almost 16 years old Alas there was no redemption for Rachel Just whining and a lack luster ending I understand that Rachel is young and a teenager and going through her formative years but she should be mature than I understand being selfish at that young age but this is just too much The book was alright with a clear voice and good characters besides Rachel f course but the plots were clunky The novel seemed jumbled and jumped around too much to totally understand One minute she's talking about Jamie's illness the next she's talking about how much she loves her teacher It's just muddled

Little Red LiesNg teacher The lies she tells herself hoping to reach solutions to the problems complicating her life merely function to make matters worse Ultimately she finds a way to come to terms with life as it reaches an end and life as it begin. This was a rather difficult book to decide on a rating for and how to review I love the main character although at times she can come off as a bit sassy to her parents and rather self important Still she was a strong well written character that I am not likely to forget as soon as I start reading the next book on my list The overall story was interesting but in my opinion moved slowly at times and made it a bit of a struggle to stay interested in especially at the beginning The relationship between the main character and her brother who had recently returned from war gave this book an unusual dynamic that I uite enjoyed The author had a really good grasp of how to show the suffering and trauma that goes along with vets who return from active duty I can't say that all of the events in this book were entirely unexpected but I did enjoy watching them unfold The progression was smooth and the ending wasn't shocking but answered enough uestions to leave me satisfied with the result Overall this was an interesting book If you like rather introspective looks into the lives of your characters this one will keep you happy One of the better family dramas I have read in recent monthsThis review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher and Netgalley
