  • Incredibly realistic

    "You love someone and they leave, but they never entirely go away. You feel them there, acutely, like an amputated limb." Phantom Limbs is a standalone, YA realistic fiction novel written by Paula Garner. This is her debut novel and it is, in one word, palpable. I could feel the life-changing loss, regret, confusion, loneliness, tentativeness, empathy, love, humor (I could go on) flowing through these characters. I found Ms. Garner's writing to be incredibly realistic and I thought she excelled at showing the reach of grief and the different ways it manifests itself in those it touches. I am both slowly and quickly falling out of love with the young-adult genre so there was a part of me that just didn't connect with this story on a five-star level but that is not to say that Phantom Limbs is not five-star worthy. Check it out! My favorite quote: “When she took a bite of pie, she moaned and her eyes rolled back, just like the TV chef with the cleavage. Why were women so sexy with eating? Jesus! What if I never developed bedroom skills that could compete with food? What if I actually got to have sex with Meg one day and she just lay back, bored, daydreaming about pulled pork sandwiches and chocolate eclairs?”

    Thanks for your feedback!
