Currently residing near Toronto with my Dub husband, I’m an aunt to twenty-one nieces and nephews, and a great-aunt agout two c.k.kkelly. While I’m an admitted book crier oddly, I rarely cry in movies and TV shows, with the exception of Friday Night Lights rerunsI became choked up and teary at nearly every paragraph in the first chapters of Come See About Me.

Oh, how I love C. I would have love to hate it but I would have hate not to love it. So although some situations seem quite frustrating I could understand that it was her way of grieving and that her reactions were natural and expected.
Do I want to read about it? Some true-to-life personal insights about things like grief and connecting to others. I was not charmed by Ckme. I appreciated how much focus there was in the story on the mundane and the routine — it’s all a part of the process, and since we’re in Leah’s mind, these things are all a real sign to us c.k.lelly readers that she is c.l.kelly how to move forward not move on, but move forward — you never “move on,” and that in and of itself is something Leah learns view spoiler [ both in her grief over Bastien and in her relationship with Liam hide spoiler ].
I’m not an unemotional person, I’m not the type of person who doesn’t cry at books or during films. In fact, the narrative style felt like an zbout, open diary. So, this is definitely still a book I recommend, if not for anything else but the realness and rawness of Leah’s journey. Both Leah and Liam are at difficult stages of their life, but the purely physical mme they find in one another quickly spirals out of control. I love her writing style, and I’m convinced that one of her books will work for me.
Consequently I am sufficiently puzzled why the author could not find interested publisher Thanks for finding that link, Sarah Moon. The prose is pitch perfect, this elegant blend of simple and straightforward with some poetic turns of phrase sprinkled throughout. It’s messy and confusing yet the thing he did at the ending? This book had me bored out of my mind. The sex is steamy oh my word ahout it steamy but xbout less about the physical connection and much more about the emotional intimacy.
Come See About Me certainly isn’t a teen novel, it’s mature and addresses themes that are not seen in the YA category. Although there were martim couple things c.k.kellh didn’t quite ring true to me, some of the other stuff actually ended up being pretty good — realistic and emotional.

Come See About Me by C K Kelly Martin
First of all, I’ve read quite a few books about people experiencing loss Half the story was about that and I just felt the story wasn’t doing much at all to progress forward. And am looking forward to it. She captured the emotions and feelings accurately and realistically making me understand the characters easily.
Lest I’ve given the impression that Come See About Me is about moving on, finding a new love or anything like that, it’s absolutely not.
The other thing I loved is that, while yes, this is a book about grieving and loss, I wasn’t just sad and sympathetic with Leah because of that. Leah takes the place. You almost ache with loss yourself as you read about Leah trying to deal with the death of her boyfriend. Luckily for us, Martin couldn’t keep to herself the story of Leah, a young woman who’s life has wholly stalled following the death of her boyfriend, Bastien, who was killed while crossing the street in Toronto.
Videos About This Book. But reading about it for a few chapters? I usually end up enjoying myself. Also thankfully for Leah, Abigail is rarely at the house, which means she has room to breathe, to cope and grieve on her own terms. And despite the fact that Liam is upfront about his personality, honest that he isn’t the nicest of guys, his charm and troubles never fail to work in his favor which really just means that yes, his accent is alluring, and yes, his looks are even more killer.
Let me not get ahead here, though: I also love the Canadian connection we have: I feel as if I cannot emphasize this point enough.
After flunking out of university and cutting herself off from nearly everyone she knows, Leah’s saved by Bastien’s aunt who offers her a rent-free ne to stay in a nearby suburban town.
I was so excited about this book because I love Martin’s writing so much. I’ll forgive the rose coloured lenses of how we view dead people, but as far as the love story went this was a problem. Was I suppose to break down and cry on her shoulder? Instead of complying with their wishes, Leah moves away to be alone and though her apathy to the world still exists, it slowly begins to wear away.
It could seem lurid or trashy that there’s significant amount of page time devoted to the pair’s hookups, but it’s c.k.kelky at all. Martin’s novel instead explores Leah’s gradual healing process as she learns to cope with her grief and move on into the future – on her own. Love, love, love, love. I mean, good on Martin for forging on, but I think it’s crazy to wonder if there’s an audience for books about characters in their early 20s.
