July 17, 09 Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott


Two days ago I went to the library and saw Love You Hate You Miss You on display. I got it and despite all the other library books I should've been reading, I started it immediately.

Love You Hate You Miss You is about Amy, who has the best friend in the world, Julia. They go to parties, share each others' secrets, and maybe drink a little too much, but it's not a big deal. Until Julia and Amy get into a car accident and Julia's life is taken. Amy blames herself for the event. She writes to Julia to deal with the guilt, and becomes reunited with a boy who made her feel something she never felt before. Will Amy set herself and Julia free?

While I did not like Bloom, one of Scott's other books, I really enjoyed this one. The writing was so much better and while I didn't like Amy, I understood her. Scott was able to make Julia very complex. I did get a bit weary of this book, after reading Cracked Up To Be, the genre was beginning to grate on my nerves. Despite that, this was a massive improvement to Bloom. I'm glad I gave Scott a second chance.

Emma Out!


  1. I know what you mean. I can only handle so much of the 'intense issues' books before I head for the 'junk food' genres.... :)

  2. This cover makes me think of American Beauty (the film).

  3. I've never seen that Juju. Is it good?

    Yeah, I'm exactly the same way, Raspberry.
