The grief edition
This is FALL FOR ANYTHING, by Courtney Summers.
It is a truly incredible book.
It is brutal and raw and sad and honest.
It is the best depiction of grief that I have ever read. I lost count of the number of passages I marked, thinking, 'Yes! That's it. That's EXACTLY what it's like.'
Courtney Summers is a genius.
And here's another genius for you. His name is Jamie Smart, He writes and draws comics and books and web stuff. He lost his dad last year and drew a comic about it. Have a look here. If you can read it without crying, I'll be amazed.
So that's all from me today, folks. Hope today is kind to you.
