Book Description
"They tried to make me go to my sister's funeral today. In the end I'd had to give in ...I'd been walking in her shadow for sixteen years and I liked its cool darkness. It was a good place to hide". How would you feel if your twin sister died suddenly? Particularly if she was the beautiful one and you were horribly disfigured. And how would it feel to be alone now if you and your sister were the only ones to know the truth about what takes place behind closed doors at home? And what would you do if it was your parents who brought danger and terror into your life? Would you dare reveal how your sister died? And would you be brave enough to find an escape of your own? "Black Heart Blue" is a powerful novel about the domestic horrors that can unfold within a small community - and one girl's quest to stand up for the truth.

    Louisa Reid puts a nightmare in a book and asks us to read it

    I had never read a book like this before. Maybe "My Sweet Audrina" by VC Andrews I read a few years ago recalls the same black rotten oppression the twins of Black Heart Blue experience in their own family life, but not quietly.

    I had never read a book like this before. Maybe "My Sweet Audrina" by VC Andrews I read a few years ago recalls the same black rotten oppression the twins of Black Heart Blue experience in their own family life, but not quietly.

    Reading this book was a shock for me. Yeah, that's the word I'd chose first: shock. This book puts all its anguish on reader releasing it slowly, non-stop, so impartially that it left me speechless.

    Reb quietly tells us the horrors she's been through without pausing a sec and without wasting any further word to better explain herself. She doesn't need to. I inexorably found myself hating the Vicar, that ridiculous little god of the house who made her and her sister's life being such a hell.

    The end is what disappointed me most, as it was not at all what I expected. It's OK, but maybe I expected to read that followed by the epilogue I had always feared of since the very first page.

    Louisa Reid puts a nightmare in a book and asks us to read it. And we are suddenly part of that nightmare and we can't get out of it unless we get to the epilogue. Brilliant and really well written. I liked her style. Rebecca and Hepzi are clearly different and their personality really well built and described. It's a diary of their brief life that makes us wonder if those horrors actually exist or if in the end it's just fiction.
