Review: Isabelle Day Refuses to Die of a Broken Heart

Isabelle Day Refuses to Die of a Broken Heart - Jane St. Anthony

I recieved a copy from Netgalley.

 

This book felt like somewhere between middle grade and YA. There was nothing really wrong with it. It tells the story of Isabelle, a young girl struggling to cope with the unexpected death of her father. She and her mom move and Isabelle goes to a new school where she has to deal with mean nun teachers and new friends. She makes the acquaintance of her two elderly neighbour sisters who are a bit weird.

 

It was sweet and certainly moving in parts towards the end, but I just didn't really connect to it much. It was a rather slow story with almost no plot. I did like the characters and how quickly Isabelle made friends and how they welcomed her into thier circle.

 

It was okay.
