The Truth about Lilly Barnes
by Kimberly Russell
Published June 5, 2012
“Today is the day it is going to happen. I’m not melancholy or nervous. I just want to get it over with more than anything. Today is the day that I, Lilly Barnes, die.” Lilly Barnes doesn’t want to live anymore. She is prepared to leave her life, family, and more importantly, her best friend Buddy behind for good. But, why? What could be so horrible that it makes a young girl want to end her life? Find out in The Truth about Lilly Barnes.
This was a really emotional book to me. Very different from what I usually choose to read and review but I’m glad that I did. It is the story of a girl that thinks she has no other choice left. It is also the story of how in the long run she discovers that there is hope after all. I do encourage people to give it a try.
I like the way the book goes back and forth between Lilly and Buddy’s point of view. It gives you the perspective of what is going on in Lilly’s head and how Buddy is dealing with what has happened to his best friend.
I give it 4 goodnight kisses!
