Before life happened is a book which tells the life of a teenage girl who suffers from the loss of parents. The writer shows along the story how much life can change and that is not always a bed of roses. I really enjoyed the book, I couldn't stop reading.
Before Life Happened is young adult novel which is a coming-of-age story at it's core. It's also a story about grief, and of how quickly things can spiral out of hand, among other things. I really enjoyed this book, it was a great debut novel and I'm highly interested in where the author will take this series.
It was highly engaging and fast paced. I found myself really engrossed in the story. I couldn't put it down from beginning to end. It was sad at times, and at times very dramatic and exciting. I liked the inclusion of the protagonists diary entries, they really help you get into her head and emphasize with her. From this book, I got the message that life is worth making it through, even when it's hard. Many people, myself included, will find this relatable.
I'd recommend this book to teenagers and adults alike.
