I have been having a lot of issues with my anxiety & depression. Which is why my reviews, knitting photos, & other stuff has been so slow. I am trying to move on but it is hard when you lack motivation to do anything at all. My knitting, crocheting, & even playing World of Warcraft & Minecraft hold no interest to me. I am working with my shrink & therapist to try to get things back in normal working order, but it is taking quite some time. I am planning on a week long vacation in the middle of September that will take me completely away from everything here. Yes, I know running from my problems is not a good thing nor does it solve anything. I am well aware that my problems will either follow me or be waiting for me when I get home. I am looking at this vacation will be a rest & respite from the problems. A time for me to rest from the fight of surviving. I hope to come back refreshed or at least a bit less tired then I am now.
Everyone does bad things when no one is watching
Mercilessly bullied in high school, Ava knows she needs to put the past behind her and move on, but she can’t—not until she’s exacted precise, catastrophic revenge on the people who hurt her the most.
First, she watches Saanvi. Flawlessly chic and working hard at a top architectural firm, Saanvi has it all together on the surface. But everyone does bad things when they think no one is watching and Ava only wants what’s fair—to destroy Saanvi’s life the way her own was destroyed.
Next, she watches Cass. She’s there as Cass tries on wedding dresses, she’s there when Cass picks out a cake, she’s there when Cass betrays her fiancé. She’s the reason Cass’s entire future comes crashing down.
Finally, Ava watches Mel. Mel was always the ringleader and if anyone has to pay, it’s her. But one tiny slipup and Ava realizes the truth: Mel knows she’s being watched, and she’s ready to play Ava’s games to the bitter end.
This book’s description spoke to me since I was tormented & tortured all through my school years. There were times I wanted to do exactly what Ava does in this book, but like Ava you learn how useless & how it just brings you down to the bullies level. Personally, this book just showed Ava to be the bigger bully & it was disappointing to me. The story just didn’t flow like I thought it should. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this book. I understand the depths of bullies & the traumatic feelings they cause. This books could have done a lot better on how to overcome and be above the bullies then it did. I was very unhappy with how the author decided to handle the bully issue.
I received this book from Net Galley for this review.
