Bryn Greenwood came through with a powerful, provocative and controversial romantic story about two unlikely parties and their hard-earned love. Wavy is the daughter of a notorious drug dealer, and she's grown into a distrusting, suspicious person. So, she's just staying out of trouble, keeping her mouth shut and keeping to herself.
Wavy is just an 8-year-old girl, and she's doing everything in her power to raise Don, her little bro. The kid is the only responsible member in the family, and the only way for her to relax and find peace in all the craziness that's going around her is to look at the gorgeous night sky. She's a big fan of the constellations, and the best place to gaze at them is the field behind her home.
Soon, she meets Kellen, one of her dad's goons: he crashes his bike, and that's how the two get to know each other and become friends. Time flies fast, and, by the time the child turns into a teenager, the only good thing in her life becomes the relationship with the guy. Everything else is either too brutal or too depressing for Wavy to handle. But, when a tragedy devastates her family, her aunt comes in to rescue the girl.
All the Ugly and Wonderful Things is an emotional, moving and "piercing" novel that you won't be able to forget. Bryn Greenwood uses her brilliant writing skills and tells a blood-chilling story about love, hate, destruction, immorality and finding the good in the bad. Wavy was just an ordinary child, who wanted to be happy, but turned away from her and left the kid one-on-one against the harsh world. Will be she able to prevail? Read the book and find out!
