You know how some things are only good at first? Well, The S-Word is exactly that.
Angie, the protagonist, had a voice that immediately captivated me. She made me want to read on… so read I did, but shortly after, she lost me. Why did she suddenly want to protect Lizzie’s honor? Was it because of love for a friend regained? Was it guilt? This never became clear enough for me, and soon, I just thought she was being even more hypocritical than the people who had tormented Lizzie, the people who pushed her to end her life.
