Live Through This is one of those stories that will stay with me forever. I was expecting a psychological thriller about a girl who weaved a web of lies, and well, it was psychological—but not in a way that I ever would have imagined.
While the jacket description is true to the story, it really doesn’t prepare you for what’s inside. The author’s note at the beginning of the ARC did prepare me, however, and I’m glad it did. Knowing that this story involves an abusive relationship didn’t ruin it for me. It made the story more real and more touching. I was still surprised along the way, and it’s so hard to truly comprehend the story that I read because of how shocking it was.
The characters are well done, the feelings are great, and the book has such an intense ending. It is extremely well written and I truly hope that many people will read this. I was touched by Scott’s story. As great as the writing and the pacing are, however, all of this really is secondary to the message.
