When Sarah falls for Matthew, she falls hard.
So it doesn’t matter that he’s twenty years older. That he sees her only in secret. That, slowly but surely, she’s sacrificing everything else in her life to be with him.
Sarah’s friends are worried. Her father can’t understand how she could allow herself to be used like this. And she’s on the verge of losing her job.
But Sarah can’t help it. She is addicted to being desired by Matthew.
And love is supposed to hurt.
I pre-ordered this from Waterstones and recieved days before its publication date which is tomorrow 1st march .
Im a huge fan of Louises young adult books which are unique hard hitting and so needed in todays society .
Almost love takes Louise writing into the genre of adult fiction which i can only guarantee more readers !
This is a accurate dark real representation of love and the ugly side of it .
This makes you feel all those intense emotions involved with love. You can feel the oppression and suffocation.
Sarah is not a easy charactar to connect with but in a way that makes her more relatable because she is human and makes mistakes !
I think majority of us have been in sarahs shoes so though we may feel frustated at her choices … we can understand !
Original concept great charactars that are there for sarah in hard times . My favourite was her dad who just wanted her to be happy and have a good meal insude her .
This is a excellent read and i wish her every success with it.
