oh wow, oh wow, oh wow.
This book took my breath away. It’s a masterpiece.
When I started reading I assumed the title “Shredded” referred to snow boarding. It does, but it means so much more.
The emotional rollercoaster is breathtaking. The two main Characters, Z and Ophelia, are emotionally shredded from their past experiences. You don’t really find out until very late in the book what actually happened, and wanting to find out keeps you turning the pages.
But that wasn’t even the main reason why this book wouldn’t let me put it down. The writing, and the character development is just something else. You really understand the emotional trauma the two go through. That something that easily could have gone so wrong, but it’s done so right in this book. There’s never a time when I want to roll my eyes at an overly dramatic and forced scene. Never an “oh Please” or “oh grow up already” moment.
I don’t even know how to describe it, other than: if you haven’t read this book, buy it this second. It’s unbelievable.
