Beautiful Broken Girls by Kim Savage #BookReview

Mira and Francesca Cillo—beautiful, overprotected, odd—seemed untouchable. But Ben touched seven parts of Mira: her palm, hair, chest, cheek, lips, throat, and heart. After the sisters drown themselves in the quarry lake, a post-mortem letter from Mira sends Ben on a quest to find notes in the seven places where they touched. Note by note, Ben discovers the mystical secret at the heart of Mira and Francesca's world, and that some things are better left untouched.

Kim Savage is the author of the critically acclaimed After the Woods and a former journalist. She lives north of Boston near the real Middlesex Fells Reservation of After the Woods, and she grew up near a quarry town a lot like the Bismuth of Beautiful Broken Girls (think Romeo and Julietmeets The Virgin Suicides), in stores February 21. Kim is revising her third novel, based in Boston's Back Bay, where she has never lived. Kim and her husband have three children, each of whom beg to appear in her books. They shouldn't. You can follow Kim on Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Twitter, and visit her at

This one started out strong and then just kinda fell apart. It grabbed me to start out and I was very interested in the dual timelines but it then just got to much. This story has a LOT going on and it just got pretty boring and way to detailed.  This book has barely any dialogue and is mostly descriptive. The writing is very beautiful at times but it needed some major dialogue. This was just a jumbled mess for this reader.
