    One thought on “Careless

    1. Anne

      I've been a fan of Anne Cassidy's novels for a while now, I think she is one of the best authors of Young Adult novels out there. Her books are always compassionate with a gritty realism to them and would appeal to young readers aged around 13 plus.Careless is about two teenagers; Nicky Nelson and Chloe Couzens. Two young people who couldn't be more different yet have a bond that ties them together. Chloe has just lost her Mum Lesley to cancer and is grieving, Nicky was one of Lesley's clients - [...]

      This book was rubbish. I chose it from the library because the blurb makes it sound good - like it has a lot of unanswered mysteries in it. And it does, that's for sure. But the way Cassidy reveals theme just downplays it. I honestly think that the initial storyline is great - she could have done so much with it. But she didn't. Every mystery turned out to be obvious and rubbish. You didn't feel for Nicky or Chloe or Lesley or Sonia. You didn't even get to know them, despite knowing their brief [...]

    3. LucĂ­a

      At the start of this book it was very, very depressing and sad for a child's book. At the middle it got a little better but still not a very good story line. During the end it felt like the author was just getting tired of the book and rushed the ending which made the book even more pointless to begin with. So at the end of this book I would score it 4 out of 10. If Had to recommend this book it would be to a 9-12 year old as it is very sad and doesn't put you in a good mood.

      this book was really good, the beginning is quite sad and then it starts to get more and more interesting where it gets to the point of you being unable to put the book down again however the ending i personally feel was cut short and really should not have stopped there so i had to only give it 4 stars.

    5. Lili Kathey

      I half-liked and half-disliked this book at the same time, because I just couldn't like Nicky nor Chloe, no matter how much I tried. They're maybe not meant to be likeable, but still and it also felt like something was lacking. However, it was in a way quite good. Well written and all. Alright read.

    6. Sophie

      Was entirely disappointed with this book, as a reader who enjoys her books I felt like this had no real plot and none of the events that occurred in the book had real meaning or even needed to be there.
