Jenny is one of those popular girls who appear to have it all She is attractive put together confident The other girls want to be her the boys want to have her But underneath the false bravado is a mess She blames herself for the death of her adored Gran hates what she has made herself into and the never ending pretence to keep it up She hates herself to the point of self harm She has sought help but that doesn t stop the feelings doesn t stop the pain Nic is the outcast Wearing her winter uniform in a heatwave ostracized as an oddity she doesn t mix doesn t integrate She is bullied and abused by the girls at school She feels invisible But under the long sleeved top she hides a terrible secret one of violence and abuse Away from the nastiness of teenage girls she is fighting for her very survivalNobody would ever expect these two 17 year olds to be friends They inhabit polar opposite places in their social world But a chance encounter makes Jenny reach out in kindness revealing to Nic that there is another side to her from the shallow selfish bully And as Jenny coaxes Nic to open up a friendship starts to formNic is the observant one sensitive to other people s emotions Soon

develops so does their attraction Thrown together by an accident they uickly become each others strength Together they can escape from the secrets and lies from the pain they have both sufferedThey both know that coming out is a huge step They plan to keep their love secret while they sort out their lives But Jenny s bitchy and dominating older sister alerted by her spys comes home for the very purpose of removing Nic from Jenny s life When she discovers that Nic is a lesbian she uses every means to separate and destroy themWill Jenny fight for her new found love fight to be the person who is emerging from under the brittle fa ade or will she cave in to the social pressure and bullying older sister And while Jenny is deciding who she wants to be can Nic hold on to hope for a future and stop the abuse to reclaim her own life This is an excellent and enthralling first novel Amy Dunne has caught the mood of 17 year old emotions and experience brilliantly On the one hand it is a tale of young adults emerging and exploring with all the angst and melodrama that entails On the other it is a serious exploration of both abuse and self harm and the impact they have on these girls internal and public livesThe two main characters are wonderfully complex and layered They are still children investigating live and love finding their sexuality and passion learning who they are and who they want to be But they are also adults at least partly because of the secret pain they both suffer and the growing up that has causedWhat we see is the juxtaposition of those the young adult emerging and trying to balance their teenage hormones and dramas with adult sensibilities and emotions One minute they are falling in love and in lust they next they are sulking and fighting like children They both understand the pressures of their social world but are not yet uite sure how to manage it and be themselvesThe story resonated with me Despite being old enough to be their parent it brought back memories of those angst filled days The pain of falling in love the fight to be oneself to create a space and a separate identity while still wanting and needing parental support and loveMs Dunne s portrayal of the abuse was hard to read I can t speak to its realism as a survivor but it felt all too real Nic s internal fight to stay alive stay sane stay together under the brutal mental and physical torture was intensely emotional And Jenny s self loathing and self abuse was extremely well written along with her Rizzo like shell and underlying vulnerabilityThe book flows It is well written and well crafted The dialogue is realistic It is a well paced story which kept me reading into the night As well as the teenage melodrama of first loves and social pressure the novel contains real tension There are places you can see the pain about to descend and almost want to stop but were dragged forward waiting to see how these two girls would survive if they would surviveThere are also ongoing and layered peaks and troughs Jenny and Nic face emotional battles coming to terms with their new sexual identity both internally between them and with family and friends At the same time they are facing a literally physical battle to stop Nic s abuse and in the build up and aftermath there is real fear for the outcomeMy only criticism and this is minor was that Elizabeth s complete reversal from Bible bashing super bully bitch to supportive sister was hard to believe Unlike Laura and Jack who are lightly drawn and allowed to develop their natural goodness Elizabeth s transformation feels forced Her protective excuse for her overbearing behavior is not enough to explain her extreme volte face In retrospect she was perhaps too viscously drawn as a homophobic bully to realistically change so completelyBut that slight jar does not detract from a wonderful book I thoroughly enjoyed reading it couldn t put it down Congratulations to Amy Dunne for an excellent first novel and to BSB for picking it up While the American audience will no doubt complain that they don t understand our school system we Brits have had to learn yours I for one am delighted to see a new

Characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Amy Dunne Secret Lies Characters Õ 2 Amy Dunne ↠ 2 Read & download Would you face your biggest fear to save the one you loveNicola Jackson escapes from her abuser only to realize she has no one to turn to and nowhere to go In a twist of fate she accidentally bumps into Jenny O’Connor the most popular girl at school They strike up an unlik. The tale takes place in Brassley a large town in the East Midlands of England I needed to wing it a bit when school references that would be second nature to locals got bandied about but I didn t find that too distracting and I enjoyed trying to euate the situations to my own experiences in the United States Nicola one of the leading gals has just faced a bolt or die scenario and with a few scraps of survival genes still firing she races out of her home only to moments later smack right into Jenny the other leading gal FYI these women come from very different social standings Previously I got most of the ugly scoop on both our leading ladies and they each have some serious nearly overwhelming problems causing extraordinary pain with a large dose of helplessness tossed in These issues are what contain the secret lies However the seeds for an old adage are plantedfortune favors the brave Now that the duo has made contact in a most spectacular fashion they get to face most of the rest of the story as a team I was so hookedJenny Jennifer O Connor is not a super student like her elder sister was In fact she just slides by while smoking drinking taking drugs being sexually active and supposedly the most popular girl at school too There are mega pressures fueling her wicked ways the never ending strain to be like her elder sister constant exasperation to sustain her popularity and dark demons that she is barely managing to keep at bay Yet she has a tender and caring uality that pops out or pokes through that simply dazzled me I rooted for this complex gal to get on top of her troublesNic Nicola Jackson tries to be invisible at school and usually succeeds at being totally ignored but sometimes gets razzed She really wishes she could be invisible at home especially when her mother was at work Time and time again she is beaten and burned by her mother s live in boyfriend He tells her in no uncertain terms to get out or die one day after returning from school and being assaulted by him once again Oh my goodness I felt helpless and traumatized sharing this experience with Nic This was incredibly intense and unnerving Yet it laid out the scenario in spades Nic has a rough time in this story I really adored her as she was spot on insightful and not completely beaten downWhen a book makes me laugh with intensity and can also bring me to tears I stand up and take notice As grisly as the opening is I hadn t seen nearly the depths that would unravel and then the beauties burst forth trumping the uglies big time There is a mega amount of passion back stabbing caring of a good and not so good uality tender and passionate loving super harsh brutalizing and a truly compassionate reconciliation This is splendidly balanced from the beginning to the end I hope the harsh moments presented as the groundwork is laid do not scare any readers off I heartily recommend this book as it principally has everything but I do need to caution you it may be classified as young adult but personally based on the story line and sexual situations I would think it is aimed at the older end of the young adult market 16 18 Astonishingly magnificentNOTE This book was provided by Bold Strokes Books for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews
