My Review

White Chalk by Pavarti K. Tyler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! this book left me absolutely speechless! I felt so bad for Chelle time and time again as her life got more and more depressing! it made me cry out for all the innocent children in the world who go through these things every day. Pavarti did a wonderful job at bringing it all out and hitting us all in the head with a big dose of reality.

Chelle is memorised the fist time she laid eyes on Troy. He is gorgeous, deep, and everything Chelle could ever want, and when he looks her way she is sure her world will never be the same again. She has never been like the other kids, going to movies, bullying other kids or gossiping about their latest crushes. Her father is a drunk and her mother couldn't be bothered with her existence unless it is to do the chores. One look from Troy makes all that bearable, but Chelle knows its not ever possible for him to love someone as damaged as her.

As Chelle try's to navigate her spiralling life, she secretly pleads with someone to save her from herself, from her life and from the fate that is rapidly catching up with her. Can she out run it? Or will fate make Chelle its plaything?

Chelle was defiantly the star of this book! I loved her to pieces and I wanted to reach in the book and comfort her time and time again. This is defiantly not a book for the faint hearted! it is extremely sexual in nature, violent and not surprisingly has a lot of foul language...lol

I had a little prob with the ending, I thought it could have ended differently but still thought it was a great book.

Pavarti is an incredible writer and I don't know how she got through writing this without crying all the time! I wanted to cry through the whole thing! (I have 4 kids) I can never imagine having stuff like this happen to my girls!

Chelle isn’t a typical 13-year-old girl—she doesn’t laugh with friends, play sports, or hang out at the mall after school. Instead, she navigates a world well beyond her years.

Life in Dawson, ND spins on as she grasps at people, pleading for someone to save her—to return her to the simple childhood of unicorns on her bedroom wall and stories on her father’s knee.

When Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle is desperate to believe his arrival will be her salvation. So much so, she forgets to save herself. After experiencing a tragedy at school, her world begins to crack, causing a deeper scar in her already fragile psyche.

Follow Chelle’s twisted tale of modern adolescence, as she travels down the rabbit hole into a reality none of us wants to admit actually exists.
