Ruin by Clarissa Wild

WOW, WOW, WOW!! This book was so addicting!! I'm not even sure I can put into words how much I adored this book! It's not easy to talk about such real life issues and really portray them in a light that makes them understandable to others, but I think Wild did a fantastic job. This was my first book of hers and it will not be my last!! 

        Maybell Fairweather was the girl of my dreams. 

        Always smiling brightly, she kept going, despite the names her classmates called her behind her             back. 
        She was full of curiosity and independence, the extent of which I could only be jealous of. Even               though she had all odds stacked against her, she knew what she wanted from life and pursued it,           no matter the cost. 

        She was completely my opposite in every way. 
        Perfect, even though she couldn’t see it. 
        Perfect … until me. 

        Because this is the story of how I ruined her."

     Stories always seem to be better when we can relate to them. Stories based in true events are even better because we know that we are not the only ones to go through certain issues. Wild shows light on depression and bullying in such an elegant way. She brings awareness to both, all while giving us a beautiful story! 
     I could type words all day to try and convince you that this is a must read book for everyone, but there's just not enough words or time to do that. So, take my word and take a try on this amazing story!
