HEART-SHAPED BRUISE


HEART-SHAPED BRUISE  by Tanya Byrne

They say I’m evil.

The police. The newspapers. The girls from school who sigh on the six o’clock news and say they always knew there was something not quite right about me.

And everyone believes it. Including you.

But you don’t know.

You don’t know who I used to be.
Who I could have been.

For the first time Emily Koll is going to tell her story. Not what the newspapers will tell you, or the interviews on the late news, but her side of the story…her truth. Or as much as she dares to reveal.

Written in the form of a diary we learn that Emily is awaiting trial at Archway Young Offenders Institution. She is cold, distant, and refuses to apologise for what she has done. And what has she done?

We don’t find this out till the end of the novel and by then we want to know. By then we have travelled far with Emily, with her pseudonym Rose, and with her nemesis Juliet.

This novel is a psychological look at infamy,

so forget about Emily, now I’m Harry Koll’s daughter,
about identity ,
 the best thing about being Rose Glass was that I didn’t have to be Emily Koll 
and how far a person would go to seek revenge.
You break it, you pay for it, and you broke me. You got what you deserved.

 This novel looks at revenge but also how we are shaped by our families. And if we could be anyone, who would we be?
