Laqueur peels open the beloved characters from The Man I Love to reveal new and complex layers of vulnerability. The scars from the shooting are deep and pervasive within this circle of friends. Like Daisy, they are trying to evolve without being fully resolved. But when questions from the past go unheeded, you alone must find and give your answers true.
Undeniably Laqueur is an amazingly talented writer. Her ability to ferret emotions, depict extreme mental images along with her expert writing creates a spellbinding narrative accompanied by gripping characters.
GMYT focuses on Daisy Bianco along with Opie, Lucky and Will. We discover Daisy’s anguish over the traumatic incident and her broken relationship with Erik. A retelling but yet very different as we revisit events thru Daisy’s eyes and heart. The struggles are affecting, the scars heartbreaking as we recall and recap the irrevocable ordeal and forced changes all involved suffered. Their recovery is plausible and touching.
Laqueur manages to address heavy hitting delicate topics with ease and respectability. I admire her for deftly bringing taboo topics to a wide audience spreading awareness. She explores the challenges such issues present as well as the surviving of trauma and the pain of dealing with these hard-hitting issues on an ongoing basis. Healing and its difficulty brought to the forefront.
Amazing narrative, the emotional hold both narrative and characters possess over the reader is unbelievable. You are fully invested in these characters as they are faced with a horrific incident forever changing their lives, you cheer their progress and you celebrate their recovery. Memorable in every way imaginable.
