Blurb :The world isn’t just black or white. Sometimes it’s red…They think I’ll be number seven. Unlucky number seven. Dead teenager number seven. With the rash of suicides at my school, I’ve been shipped off to my dad’s Wyoming ranch for “my own safety.” My mom worries I’ll be next-another depressed teenager whose blood will end up on the train tracks. But she doesn’t know my secrets…or what I did.Everything has changed at the ranch since I was there last. The staff is gone, and there aren’t any visitors. The place is struggling, and ALS is destroying my dad. The one bright spot in this mess is his new-and only-ranch hand, Jake. He’s gorgeous, cheerful, healthy and sane. Shadows don’t haunt his eyes and eat away at him in the night.But the ranch and Jake can’t save me from the darkness inside, or the knowledge of what I’ve done. This time, it’s up to me to save myself…
Review :After Reading Paint My Body Red by Heidi R. Kling a few days ago I find myself still trying to figure out how I feel about this book.
One the plus side.. I found a very well written plot with and deeply developed characters. Which I know is very necessary given the intense background of the story.
BUT on the minus side – nothing happened to me when I read the book.
I am a very emotional reader.
I need to feel and get emotionally invested in a book.
And it surprised me that even though the book is well written, the characters are well developed and it is a very intense plot – I felt NOTHING….and I am very sorry about this …
I whished I could give a precise reason for it but I honestly have no idea why…
But please don’t let me stop you – if you want to read this book because you liked the blurb – please try it and maybe afterwards tell me where I went wrong.
