About Bruise by Desiree Bissonnette PDF
17 year old Sara Hale has spent most of her teen years struggling with depression. Through most of her school years she has had to deal with bullying and isolation from her classmates and from her former childhood friend Alison Parker.
Ali Parker is a popular senior in high school. She’s big headed and vain, and thinks little of the feelings of others. That is, until the day her life changes forever.
The death of Sara Hale comes as a shock to many kids in her high school but the person most impacted is her former bully Ali Parker, who suddenly finds herself able to see the cuts and bruises of everyone. She soon realizes that the marks that appear blue are those that she personally has caused; be it from physical or emotional trauma. This new power forces Ali to see the real impact she has on the emotions and bodies of others, and the true part she had to play in the death of Sara Hale.
Bruise by Desiree Bissonnette Book Review
Bruise be Desiree Bissonnette is about a teenage girl named Sara and her ex-best friend Ali. Sara is a seventeen-year-old who has been struggling with depression her whole life and Ali made it worse. At the end of middle school, Ali decided that Sara was weird and wasn’t good enough to be her friend anymore. That was the day that broke Sara’s heart. When Ali ditched her everyone did. She had no one throughout all of school. Her life was rough. When she couldn’t handle the stress of school, friends, and home life she decided to kill herself.
The death of Sara was a surprise to everyone but the person who took it the hardest was Ali. After the death Ali really took a look at herself, she learned that she was the cause of Sara’s death. She made her life miserable through all those years. Someone dying is never a good thing but Ali did learn a very important lesson. For the rest of the book Ali tries to spread Sara’s life story so hopefully, others can learn the lesson she learned as well. I can’t find a Lexile range but this book is recommended for ages thirteen through seventeen.
Bruise is a book that tells a very important story that more people need to know about and be aware of. The story of Bruise is something that happens everywhere. Millions of people all over the world struggle with depression and in the year 2018 over 48,000 people lost their lives from suicide. Bruise not only makes people aware of the reality of depression and suicide, but it also shows us how others react to them. Brusie is the story of how a teenage girl reacts and learns to live knowing her best friend killed herself. The overall theme in this book is amazing… such a wholesome message. The theme develops throughout the whole book, as do the characters. For example, at the beginning of the book, everyone was a bully including Ali. No one cared about anyone else, they all just wanted to be popular.
As they adapted to life without Sarah they became better people. They learned from their mistakes and each other, to treat people with kindness. At the end of the book, everyone was a better person and the person who changed the most was Ali. In the last chapter Ali finally gets the guts to go visit Sara (at the cemetery) and what she does screams “reveals something about a character”… “Sara… I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry for everything.
I’m a jealous idiot and I lost sight of who we were. You are my best friend– the best thing that ever happened to me, and I abandoned you. I was so selfish and I thought I was above you… I’m trying really hard to change that” (p.119). That shows me that Sara’s death had a huge impact on Ali as a character and it was really fun to read about the journey. I think the overall message of this book is people can change, as Ali did.
I really enjoyed reading this book but there are some things that I was not expecting. I would not recommend this book to anyone under the age of thirteen because of the language they use and the suicide attempts throughout the book. It was overall very dark and sad and if that’s not what you are looking for I would skip this one. A good thing about Bruise was it was a very nice length. It took me about a month and a half to read and the author definitely kept me attached the whole time. If you enjoy realistic fiction I would also recommend this book. That is the just of Bruise. I hope you enjoy this book if you decide to read it!
