From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.
But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.
In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect
Sounds amazing, doesn't it? And if you need more convincing, check out the amazing blurbs:
"Live Through This is by turns harrowing, sad, funny, and romantic. I couldn't put it down."--Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss
"Intensely emotional and beautifully crafted, I savored every word."
--Amanda Grace, author of In Too Deep
"An honest and realistic portrayal of what it is to live with secrets and shame." –Jo Knowles, author of Lessons From a Dead Girl
I gave Mindi a number of
evil humiliating FUN options to choose from, and she--brave soul that she is--chose one of the hardest ones. I have watched this several times and only seem to giggle more with each one. Here she is, reading from her old diary. AND THERE'S KISSING!!!!
Isn't she too adorable for words???
*tiny correction: Mindi wanted to make it clear that she meant a WAGE of $3.61 an hour, not price*
