Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne

I received Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne as part of a Book Blog Tour*. It is the story of Angelica Stone, a victim of sexual abuse that resulted in psychological trauma. She was reluctant to allow others in her life, but becomes best friend with Lola, a work colleague. Lola is from a happy middle-class family. Lola and Angelica form a strong bond, leading to life-changing events.

After reading the book, the first thing I thought was: 5 stars. I’ve realized from Lola and Angela’s talk how the story will evolve, but that might have happened because I was familiar with the issues described in the book (not very common and I think that adds to the mystery if you are not pervious to a particular psychological problem). Even so, knowing what might happen didn’t ruin the book for me at all.

The ending was a bit of a let down for me. I was hoping of something different, but, then the ending is more realistic like this. Of course, I don’t want to get into details because of spoilers. That being said, I do recommend the book. I started reading it in the afternoon and on the following day I finished it. It was interesting and gripping and I wanted to see what happens next.
