Clean: The London Collection
About this deal
It honestly felt like I was reading at least three books about Lexi's life, as her backstory at her posh girl's school was unravelled, along with her spoiled yet rocky childhood. So many of the other patients who were getting help are equally loveable, and feel real and fleshed out. Clean treats each of the conditions featured with sensitivity, and nothing is included for shock value. There's also an almost throw away comment of a line which mentions a young trans male whom Lexi had previously interacted with at school.
Some were more cliché than others, but a lot of them seemed genuine with both good and bad sides which gives them humanity. In all honesty, I couldn't find a flaw with the book it was breathtaking and addictive and I would strongly recommend it. Nach ein paar Tagen Pause habe ich dann wieder zu dem Buch gegriffen und dann ging es los; dann war ich plötzlich drin in der Geschichte.Clean is a journey not just about getting of drugs, but a journey of Lexi finding out who she really is underneath her party girl persona. Auch wenn ich mir das Ganze doch noch etwas schonungsloser gewünscht hätte mit etwas mehr Realität, konnte mich das Buch absolut fesseln. Po to per pamoką analizavome knygos ištraukas, aptardami priklausomybių, valgymo sutrikimų, savęs žalojimų, romantinių santykių bei šeimos temas.
For me this was the real strength of the novel showing the reader an incredibly realistic account of how deeply such issues can affect those dealing with them. My favorite was Kendall, a trans character battling anorexia, how she approached both of those elements of herself was one of the best things that I have read in a very long time. As the novel progressed, and I learned more about her character and why she acts in certain ways, I grew fonder of her.Colourful yet troubled, the reader gets to meet the myriad of multi-layered characters that bring another dimension to the story and prove pivotal in Lexi’s recovery.
Everyone has a different addiction: some’s addiction is related to drugs, other’s are about food but Brady’s she can’t figure out.Ich bin dennoch froh, zu Clean gegriffen zu haben, und würde es weiterempfehlen; allerdings nur, wenn ihr euch sicher seid, dass ihr mit den Triggern umgehen könnt. Then when I finished it I was left with a feeling both of complete satisfaction but also wanting to read about these characters lives more. The story circles back in on itself as you read in the most wonderful ways, and I loved the choppy narrative and the slow reveal of past events.
