grav_ity: (books 2011)
This was a book about isolation and grief, and then getting over isolation and grief, and I really liked it. I was afraid at it would be bleak af, but it was so, so the opposite of that, for which I am profoundly grateful.

LaCour's exploration of family and lies and secrets and love was excellent, and the relationship between the two main characters, both romantic and otherwise, was just perfect. Watching them grow back together and figure out how to talk again, now that they've had some distance is so painful and so true. They don't know how, but they also don't want to give up, and so they keep working on it, and it's great.

Also, the roommate (and her family) are wonderful.

Basically, it wasn't quite "good things happen to good people", because it was shrouded by a tragedy, but it was "good people come together", and I enjoy that, too.
