Published August 9th 2016

As the daughter of a meth dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents. Struggling to raise her little brother, eight-year-old Wavy is the only responsible “adult” around. She finds peace in the starry Midwestern night sky above the fields behind her house. One night everything changes when she witnesses one of her father’s thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold, wreck his motorcycle. What follows is a powerful and shocking love story between two unlikely people that asks tough questions, reminding us of all the ugly and wonderful things that life has to offer.



This book is unlike anything I’ve ever read. I doubt I’ll ever read a book like All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. This book deals with so many incredibly difficult subjects and it was very hard to read at times but it’s one the most amazing books I’ve ever read. The writing is wonderful but what really makes this book what it is, is the characters. They’re so unforgettable and beautiful and flawed.
I think this book is amazing and worth reading but I do understand why some people don’t like it. I think this is a book that you have to go into with an open mind and experience this book for yourself. Because this book is definitely an experience.
