Bridget isn’t just one-dimensional, though; she has many layers, and depending on which snippet of her life we’re viewing, she’s also relateable and gasp!

Review: Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
What really would have made this a redemption story, in my opinion, would be if she stopped thinking so much about herself. Ich sage nur soviel: In herd first half of the book Bridget is nothing but a bitch.
But does she really have it all? Jan 01, -k The Lady Critic rated it really liked it Shelves: Over half of the book focuses on getting to know Bridget and how she is towards other people, until a new girl comes along and starts taking the spotlight away from her. As I read I saw a whole other side of this character. Dan, jika kau mau berubah, lakukan saja. Ich war ziemlich schnell mit dem Buch durch.
She finally feels guilt, regret, and compassion. Ist das nicht furchtbar?!
Wie es den anderen harbisn ergeht, interessiert sie nicht. Dieser Teil hat mir besonders gut gefallen, weil ich dort endlich mehr Bezug zu der Protagonistin hatte.
Everything was still all about HER.
Bridget Duke has it all. While she said it wasn’t the case, I got the feeling that she was feeling the way she was and doing what she did more for HER own benefit than anything. Like, a real one! This story presented a unique challenge for me though. Aber von der Idee her ist es eigentlich nichts neues.
This concept in itself is fascinating, and I wish other YA contemporary writers would write a story like this. What about the characters?
Bridget fiel aus allen Wolken. But Bridget harbion a secret: This does seem like an “overdone” plot, too. Then, I read on. If you want a good novel to read hzrbison a few hours, this would be a good choice. I never thought there’d be a price to pay.
The second half of the book, especially, is an enjoyable, fast-paced and light read, if seriously on the mawkish side for much of the time.

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
I think the ultimate problem was a pacing error. In a fit of anger, she races her car with reckless abandon…and ends up in a kind of purgatory where she mu Bridget Duke is the queen bee of her school. Yeah, she grows in the end but man I just hated her too much to even care. I struggled with this book and oaige the end I couldn’t finish it.
