A book the gets you inside the mind of a teenager after experiencing a trauma. But when she witnesses a holdup in a diner, she freezes. The gunman is shot and killed by the police. Is there such thing as a fair fight? Goodreads About the Author: Sarah Skilton lives in California with her magician husband and their son.
By day she works in the film and tv business. This is her first book. And that is an important thing to remember when reading a book. Each writer uses different attributes of our senses to tell the story. Sarah Skilton uses colours and latches onto the fear of a trauma. Because she had been doing Tae Kwon Do for so long, she had it set in her mind to fight, to stand up, to be strong, to be brave.
But when it came down to it, she froze. Imogen felt like everything she was doing was living on borrowed time, the gunman died and it was her fault. She was the one who was supposed to be brave, she was supposed to stand up and fight when it counted, and she froze because he had a gun.
A totally reasonable action for anyone else, but not her. She felt like she had to recreate her life because the whole thing had been a farce. Imogen felt completely different about everything and she tried to get some sort of physical signs of the mental beatings. Her body and mind both trying to get on the same page to understand what happened and how to deal with the after-the-fact. There is no going back, there is only building on what you have left. With Bruised , I found that the characters were underexposed for the reader to follow.
This was intentional to push the perspective of the traumatized thought process, but still, it made it very difficult for a reader to gauge where people sat in her life, and in her mind. Imogen pounds into us the same thoughts that are racing through her head, and how primary they are to everything else in her life. Bruised is a very insightful book. Maybe you want to buy this book and read it for yourself? No problem.
