Death? OUCH. Your kicking, screaming weepy movie antidote. Pearl breaks all the china, plus your heart. Caution: this is not your average John Green sad-happy book of grief and loss. No: this is the type that tears at hair, smashes mirrors and leaves your face all snotty. Pearl is a mess. Reeling from her mother’s death, she’s now forced to live with the stinking baby who killed her. (The Rat.) Pearl is is heartbroken – in a screaming in rage, shutting out her loved ones sort of way. Is there any end to her pain? The least likeable, yet still deeply loveable, teen-in-grief you’ll ever meet.
