    475 starsI'm not someone that gives out five star ratings very often Call me cold hearted blame in on my Slytherin soul whatever but it's just not something I can do very often For a book to warrant a perfect 'score' from me it has to be pretty much perfect I cannot have any major problems with it and I have to get that old gut f

Hannah Barnaby ☆ 8 REVIEW

Some of the Parts

Sometimes bad things happen and we are not the same when they are over For months Tallie McGovern has been coping with the death of her older brother the only way she knows how by smiling bravely and pretending that she's okay She’s managed to fool her friends her parents and her teachers so far yet she can’t even say his name out loud “N ” is as far as she can go But when Tallie comes acros. First a few overall thoughts about this subgenre of contemporary YA Strange but true Some of the Parts is the seventh at least YA book about organ donation to come out in the past year or so I haven t read them all but Some of the Parts worked much better for me than for instance Things We Know By Heart which tried to bring a love after loss romance into the mix and while this approach may have worked in the film Return to Me haven t seen it I remained skeptical and somewhat weirded outSo in thinking about the several YA organ donation books I ve read I realized that they combine at least two tried and true YA tropes the grief book the uest book Because while grief books are very moving anyone who s been through a grieving process knows that it s often very internal Solitary And sad I can see the need for the uest adding that element keeps things moving along and gives them of a purposeOkay on to the book at hand After the death of Tallie s older brother she feels stuck Stuck with her guilt and grief stuck with her withdrawn parents stuck in a life she no longer recognizes I thought that Some of the Parts did a great job portraying the grieving experience the awkward reactions of others the way you feel that you ve gone through something that will make you feel forever different and very aloneThere s a boy A boy who in a very coincidental fashion offers Tallie just what she needs a distraction a co conspirator and an important resource that last part was the big coincidence I wouldn t call their relationship a true romance but they have enough of a connection that if you need romance in your books I think you ll be satisfied Okay onto the uest I was skeptical at first but I ended up really liking this part of the story The sneaky crafty things that Tallie did reminded me so much of the way my scheming sixteen year old self would have acted that I laughed out loud The book had a minor subplot about her brother s girlfriend that could have been predictable but took a unexpected turnOverall I really enjoyed Some of the Parts I thought that the book offered up a moving account of the different ways people process grief and lossRead of my reviews on YA Romantics or follow me on Bloglovin Thanks to the publisher for providing a free advance copy of this book for me to review

S a letter in the mail it only takes two words to crack the careful façade she’s built around herself ORGAN DONOR Two words that had apparently been checked off on her brother’s driver’s license; two words that her parents knew about and never confided to her All at once everything Tallie thought she understood about her brother’s death feels like a lie And although a part of her knows he?. This book suffers from the classic tale of great concept and terrible execution Honestly the plot line felt so disconnected with multiple separate story lines where everything is dragging out and then uickly rushed to wrap up What you read in the synopsis is not what is reflected in the book it was like two different people wrote the synopsis and actual novelI am going to start off with that Tallie is a disaster never in the book is she described as smiling bravely and pretending she is okay In fact she spends the majority of the book avoiding any conversation that would mention her brother outside of her head stealing his personal items and mail hiding numerous things from her parents and skipping class because even 4 months after her brother s passing no teacher would dare scold her There was no character development in fact this was like character disintegration She went from semi function to literally losing her mind and then several pages later everything is perfectly fineNow as I mentioned there are numerous mini plots in this book First off starting with the breakdown of Tallie s friendship with Amy This is completely unnecessary to the story Amy was a horrid character based on her interactions and then suddenly Tallie is over the obsession of fixing the friendship and washes her hands of the situation Her friend at the moment MelI don t even know how to deal with this absurdity I won t ruin the twist but there was no build up on inclination to it and honestly I felt like Hannah was like well this is already going downhill so why not add this in Nojust noFor the love of God authors know when your story is enough The first 225 pages were a messed up pity party and then bam The next 75 pages wraps up every delusional plot line and sends me on my way Some key points of the story like her parents discussing moving or therapy or healingthey are just completely forgot about No mention of it after her breakdown I am just confused and disappointed with what I just read

READ Some of the Parts
