Emily Barr ☆ 5 Summary

R chance and searches through their thingsAnd realises her life has been a lieHer mother and father aren't hers at all Unable to comprehend the truth Ella runs away to the one place they'll never th. Probably like 25 stars Hit and missI was a huge fan of The One Memory of Flora Banks so I was uite excited to read this Flora touched my heart and is the kind of character that stays with you Unfortunately this time not so much with our main protagonist who frankly was a little bit entitled and a lot whinyAnyway though there were good things and bad thingsThe Good The portions of the story where she's alone in Brazil the life there it came alive on the page and made you feel that you could actually go anywhere and do anything and life didn't have to be a static mundane thing That portion too dealt with the pure good hearts of some of our fellow human beings and had the theme running through that outward appearances don't necessarily reflect personality or intent This was a lot of the central part of it and I banged through these bits wanting to live like Ella was livingThe Bad Ella is supposedly 17 but reads like a 1213 year old for no real reason She didn't have an issue that would make her read this way in fact to all intents and purposes she had a normal upbringing mostly and was an intelligent girl Her reaction to the central secret read like a toddler throwing a tantrum than a clever girl who has had her whole life fall apart Supposedly explained away by her alter ego Bella and please for the love of GOD stop explaining that Bella Bad Ella we got it already around page 4 it didn't really ring true Although it did mean she ran off and had an adventure which was the bit I liked And please with the I'm in love with you even though I met you yesterday seriously young adults don't really do that as far as I know but it seems to be a thing in Young Adult novelsSo yes hit and miss It didn't have the depth and sense of feeling that Flora Banks had which doesn't mean it isn't a fairly good read if you can get past the annoyances and is worth it for the bits in RioI'll continue reading Emily Barr but Ella Black can be resigned to the not really going to remember this tomorrow pile

The Truth and Lies of Ella Black by Emily Barr was a book I had been anticipating for a whileI was so very excited to get started with this one as the blurb sounded fantasticUnfortunately this was not uite what I was expectingI'd go as far as to say this fell massively short of the mark in terms of what I expected this to deliver I am so disappointedIt was like a tale of two halves the first being super excitingDo you remember that old 1956 film The Bad Seed super movieWell this is where I was at rubbing my hands together in glee especially when we got the big reveal I could just picture where this was taking us Then nothing this book just sank like a damp suad and It was all highly unlikely scenarios and teenage drama and angst I kept reading expecting something to happen only to end up deflatedAnd to top it all off Ella herself was just not that likeable of a characterNow if we had got evil Ella instead of just bratty angsty Ella I could have totally digged herBut no The Truth and Lies of Ella Black is just Ella being a major cow to her parents I mean total obnoxious I hate everyone teen so over thisThis is well written and I did finish so this has those plus points in its favour but overall for me this was just an OK readSo in conclusion this just wasn't uite what I was expecting at all the book really didn't match its killer synopsis a real shame indeedThank You to NetGalley for proving me with an ARC of The Truth and Lies of Ella Black by Emily Barr of which I have reviewed voluntaryAll opinions expressed are entirely my own Reviewed By Beckie Bookwormhttpswwwfacebookcombeckiebookwormwwwbeckiebookwormcom
