Beautiful Broken Things

Sara-Barnard-Beautiful-Broken-ThingsBest friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie – confident, funny and interesting.

Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated.

As Suzanne’s past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be.

But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realises, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

The characters were realistic and complex and Barnard really nails their teenage voices.

Barnard does a great job with Suzanne’s character. It would have been tempting to overplay Suzanne’s personality and sensationalise her backstory. Instead we – along with Caddy – slowly learn more and more about the ‘damaged’ young woman who’s come to live with her aunt after a family crisis.
