The End of Everything by Megan Abbott
GENRE: Contemporary, YA | PAGES: 246
My rating: ★★★★★
The End of Everything is beautiful and disturbing all in the same breath! I loved this book. The writing was amazing – it reminded me a bit of Sylvia Plath’s style. There were some sentences I had to re-read just to fully absorb and appreciate the poetry within the prose.
The protagonist’s voice was strong, mature, and surprisingly insightful for a fourteen year old – yet without being too advanced so as to make it unbelievable. The author did a fantastic job of capturing this middle ground.
The story line was amazing – suspenseful and full of intensity throughout.
I can’t fault it in any way.
