If you're looking for a heartwarming story about a girl who falls deeply in love with a troubled boy who changes her life--a sob story with pretty metaphors and a million ways that'll tell you how "broken" she is, STOP. Don't read another word of this.
I'm not that type of girl.
My name is Emerald Anderson and I'm not going to bullshit you: I flunked out of college after my sophomore year, I've been fired from every job I've ever taken, and I've never had a fully functioning relationship in my life.
I wish I could say that I had a cheerleader in my corner, someone who says, "No, Emerald--You're great and you are good at something!" but I don't. My grandparents are completely oblivious to my life, and my mother's dying words to me were "You're going to end up just like me one day. A beautiful nothing."
She was right.
As I decide to start my life over and take two jobs that will forever change me--one from the inside, and one from the outside, I keep my mother's words close to my heart so I can keep the sexy and mysterious Carter Black away.
He's the first man who's ever pursued me, the first man who seems bent on finding out why I am the way I am, but he's wasting his time.
I'm not broken. I don't need to be fixed. I'm perfectly fine being a beautiful failure...
I thought this was a really good book. It is a story about a young woman who didn't have a normal upbringing or even a good one at that. It was a very lonely one, but she never for a second thought that it was bad or wrong. Emerald feels nothing more than what her mother taught her. That she would end up a nobody just liker her, and to always use her beauty for everything. Emerald didn't make it in college, and is now having more problems while living with her grandparents who don't seem to notice any of the problems she is having.
Everything changes though. When Carter comes into her life thinking that he can figure her out, she refuses to let him. There's nothing for him to figure out, and she would rather not waste her time, but some stories don't always go as planned, and Emeralds is no different than those. I won't share too many details because every story deserves to be discovered and understood by everyone who opens it. Want to know if Emerald can discover who she is, and that there is more to her than just being beautiful. Well then I suggest you get this book and read for yourself. Can be a very huge eyeopener for even a reader when you see that so many are blind to the truth right in front of them due to denial, and that sometimes it's okay to trust others. This is a great story for that!
