Wow I don’t know what to say really.
I think that most people rating this book have judged it based on the author’s hoax at claiming this was a true story but if you ignore all that mess, what you find here is a really weird, heart breaking and hilarious novel. I think people need to start looking at this as a stand-alone novel and push the whole scandal to the side to see how brilliant this book actually is.
I wasn’t sure why I decided to request this from Netgalley because it’s the sort of book I’d normally steer clear of, but I’m glad I left my comfort zone to read this, because it was worth it.
Sarah will take you through every single emotion you can possibly think of, from love to terror to hope and you’ll find yourself a bit lost once it’s all over. I have another JT LeRoy book to start soon, I’m hoping I like it just as much as this.
Thanks to Netgalley and Little Brown Book Group UK for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.
