Book Review: The Smallest Thing

The Smallest Thing - Lisa Manterfield

Don't forget to keep the tissues nearby, this story will leave you with a lot of emotions. This is such a heartfelt story about how tragedy can bring people together and tear them apart in the most dire circumstances. Emmott is every 17 year old growing up in a small town just waiting for the day they can start their "real" life, and then real life shows up in a very unexpected way.

 

There are so many roller-coasters in this telling tale about a small village impacted in a most severe way. I really enjoyed going through it with Emmott and watching her blossom with understanding as her preconceived notions of life are challenged in every way. 

 

I would highly recommend this to readers who don't mind facing the realities of life and death and enjoy a well crafted coming of age story. 

 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.
