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.


  1. Oh my wonderful friend.

    I love you. You are so brave.

    Much hugs.

  2. Hope the sun pokes through the clouds for you today. *hugs*

  3. Awww, that cartoon was beautiful but sad. I will mark this book as to read. *hug*
