Beautiful Broken Girls

Author: Kim Savage
Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux
Release Date: February 21, 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Per the author: "Ben touched seven parts of Mira Cillo: her palm, hair, chest, cheek, lips, throat, and heart. It was the last one that broke her. In Beautiful Broken Girls, Mira sends Ben on a post-mortem quest to find notes in the seven places where they touched — notes that explain why she and her sister, Francesca, drowned themselves in the quarry lake. How Ben interprets those notes has everything to do with the way he was touched, once, by a bad coach years ago.

But the truth behind the girls’ suicides is far more complicated, and has to do with a dangerous infatuation, a deadly miracle, and a crushing lie. Beth Clark’s cover is delicately spooky, but the teens in the novel are not delicate. Rather, they love fiercely, protect one another unwaveringly, and risk everything to speak the truth. In the way that the hand on the cover hovers near the heart, there is a mystical secret at the heart of Beautiful Broken Girls that I cannot wait to share with readers."

Why I'm excited:
This synopsis sounds heavily reminiscent of The Virgin Suicides (a book I didn't love, but a movie that I did). I'm definitely curious about both the sisters and Ben. This cover is crazily eerie,  too, with the ripples, the communion dress, and the doll-like hands. I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
