(READ) The Fix by Natasha Sinel Author Natasha Sinel
K from their girlfriend thinking about kissing another boy when ou have a boyfriend these were all things that were all a bit off for meThe storyline in this was about Macy and the way she fell in love with Sebastian whilst she had a boyfriend There was a bit of cheating emotional at first admittedly but cheating all the same There was also the uestion of why Macy behaved the way she did and what had happened to her as a child to cause her to act that way but this was put on a bit of a back burner for To think I spent three days on thisWell okay it wasn t all terrible I don t wanna be a Debbie Downer but God I don t know where to begin on this one Our MC Macy Lyons is at a party one evening with her friends and boyfriend when she bumps into the very mysterious Sebastian Ruiz They strike up what feels like an hour long conversation which I assumed the author was trying to make philosophical and John Green esue but it only came off as two stoned teenagers at a midnight rager raving about planetsA
*Few Days After The *days after the Macy is still thinking about Sebastian still enad by their perfect conversation until she hears he s in the hospital The psych ward to be exact She tries to visit him but only those pre registered can visit Flash forward through some unnecessary bits Macy has her ticket in and although she met Sebastian once she s off to visit him in the psych unitAND HE WAS CRAZAAAAAAAY KiddingBut here s the thing about Sebastian He is so judgmental He s as we know in the psych unit but he just blatantly snots on the people there like he s better than them He s like My roommate is crazy That girl likes to water the plants even though they re fake What a nut Like who are ou He tried to commit suicide but when Macy comes in he s all lounging around in his joggers like he s too cool for societyAnother worthy mention here he d get all snappy with Macy for no reason but she was too dumb to stick up for herself view spoiler He also choked out his ex girlfriend and thought an apology would be suitable Um right hide spoiler I received a copy from Edelweiss In exchange for an honest reviewMacy and Sebastian were both okay characters and I felt sorry for them at points but I didn t love them There wasn t anything awfully wrong with this book it just felt way too slow for me which made the story drag for me which made the story drag felt longer than what is was because of it and when I got to the end I was uite relieved Overall Not awful but not very enjoyable for me With an honest but gentle approach into Macy s world THE FIX is emotional at times heart warming and witty at others and very well written with a strong voice I was captivated by the novel Loved this one A painful story beautifully told. She realizes that while revealing her secret could ruin her seemingly perfect family keeping silent might just destroy her The Fix follows two good hearted teenagers coming to terms with the cards they were dealt It’s also about the fixes we rely on to cope with our most shameful secrets and the hope and fear that comes with meeting someone who challenges us to come clean.
Ay while I didn t know exactly where Ms Sinel was taking us from the initial pages of THE FIX I m so glad I went there with her anyway Macy s journey was one I ll never forget I cried with her screamed at her parents with her and longed for the one person who just might understand the pain she d been through all with her But it wasn t just Macy I fell in love with through every page turned All of the characters in this book were beautifully drawn and real and characters in this book were beautifully drawn and real and to me long after I finished reading it A definite must for anyone who loves heartfelt stories told with ease and grace This book took me a little by surprise First of all I liked the main character Macy very much despite the fact that she appeared to be a tad difficult with her mother But much later in the story ou find out why I m getting ahead of myself thoughI thought this was going to be a somewhat serious but cute book but as soon as I met Sebastian I realized this wasn t going to be uite what I was expecting As the story progressed though I was great with that because it ended up being so much and having so much depth than what I thought it would have Sebastian was a great character one with real flaws real fears real problems and watching him struggle through those things made me like him so much as a character Sebastian s issues served two purposes for me as I read this book First it allowed me to get to know Macy really well No I meant to say that His issues are what cause Macy s true spirit to emerge Second it brought things out of her that the reader had no idea were there It uncovered an event ou never suspected she d been through Watching her work through these things was heartbreaking because she had to be convinced of what I the reader already knewThe story itself was wonderfully written and the sensitive issues portrayed in the story were handled so well I thought the author did an amazing job juggling these things and treating them with the sensitivity they deserved It was a skillful bit of writing that Macy s character came across so well despite the fact that she does Things Without Knowing Why She Does Them without knowing why she does them she has et to admit even to herself what would cause her to act the way she doesAgain amazing writing a truly sensitive poignant story with a sweet but serious romance Great book Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Sky Pony Press and Edelweiss He s just a friend I don t believe Jewish Women Speak About Jewish Matters you This was an interesting story about a girl with something bad hiding in her pastMacy was a bit of a difficult character to really understand and I found her behaviour a bit unusual Sleeping around sleeping with boys who are on a brea. Superficial gym rat she’s thankful to have allies in her loving laid back dad and herounger brother But a conversation with a boy at a party one night shakes Macy out of the carefully maintained complacency that has defined her life so far The boy is Sebastian Ruiz a recovering addict who recognizes that Macy is hardened by dark secrets And as Macy falls for Sebastian. The Fix is an in between book for me I felt like the parts that I liked and didn t like were eual thus I m giving it 3 stars It s very hard for me to describe or write a review for this book so I m going to do a list review insteadWhat I liked The issues tackled abuse drugs mental ilness Rebecca the ever supportive friend The MC s relationship with Gavin her little brother Darren and his observance What I didn t like The cheating even though the main character doesn t own up to it How things ended her relationships with her parents and Chris were left outhanging The story was slow at times It s really hard to review this BOOK I DIDN T LOVE IT I didn t love it I didn t hate it either I may or may not recommend 45 Stars on my blog I accidentally reuested this title on Edelweiss thinking it was The Fixer and I am extremely happy I did This book dealt with several sensitive issues that affect many Friends Forever: Everything Changes (Friends Forever) young adults and did it in a realistic way And in answer to several of the bad reviews I saw here on Goodreads this book IS NOT ABOUT CHEATING THERE WAS NO CHEATING IN THIS STORY and ifou think there was The TV Writer's Workbook: A Creative Approach To Television Scripts you didn t read the entire book I liked it because it had examples of several types of families with different dynamics The scenes dealing with the issues were not overly dramatized for shock effect like I have seen in many of the current issue related YA Contemporaries I would not recommend this for readers under 15ears of age Up until nearly the last section of the book I was thinking wow finally a book that deals with Teenage Sexual Matters In A sexual matters in a explicit way so 13 and 14 NV Level 3 Health and Social Care year olds can read it but then there was one scene that was pretty explicit in its description and thatounger audience thought went out the window for me The reason this is being downgraded to a 45 on my blog is that the MC and her best friend used the terms whore and slut in a casual conversational way several times during the story The derogatory terms were not being used as a growth platforms so that was a big no no for me and it is pretty much frowned upon in YA Contemporary now I was approved for this review book via Edelweiss in return for an honest review I will be doing a mildly spoilery review on my blog and will add the link when it is posted Loved this emotional story about honesty and connection Macy is a complicated sometimes prickly Writing in the Dust: After September 11 yet inherently likeable character with a chip on her shoulder and problems to confront She has much to sort out with family friends and love and I rooted for her to succeed and find happiness on each of those levels This is great recommendation for lovers of darker contemporary YA I was lucky enough to get to read the ARC of this bookand I LOVED itAnd I have to One conversation is all it takes to break a world wide openSeventeenear old Macy Lyons has been through something no one should ever have to experience And she’s dealt with it entirely alone On the outside she’s got it pretty good Her family’s well off she’s dating the cute boy next door she has plenty of friends and although she long ago wrote her mother off as ,
