I was brave She was reckless We were trouble Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie - confident, funny and interesting. Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne's past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be. But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realizes, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own. Beautiful Broken Things is a moving story of friendship from debut author Sara Barnard, shortlisted for the YA Book Prize and selected as part of Zoella's Book Club.

5 stars
Sara Barnard aces the teenage voice and experience. Her characters are vivid and flawed and confused and immensely relatable. This is a fantastic book to give to teens who haven't yet found that book that's caught them and chimed with them. Barnard is so good at depicting the emotions and experiences of teenagers that you cant help but be pulled in and racing through her writing, running alongside her characters and living every page with them. She deals with abuse sensitively and honestly and doesn't provide a saccharine happy ever after. This is real life, honestly portrayed. And we loved it!
