So I’m rolling through Julie Murphy’s backlist. It’s been hard to find a satisfying read for a while–I don’t know what kind of mood I’m in–and Murphy’s books are the only ones I haven’t abandoned before the end of the first chapter.
So here is my review for Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy.
#stickynotereviews for Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy. There's no mistaking it: Alice is a mean girl. If you go in expecting any different, you'll be disappointed. This is a novel about accepting consequences, and it's about what happnes when people who say they value honesty are not honest with everone who expects it. I foudn Alice hard to like, but that may have been part of the point. I also found myself wondering why Harvey stuck around through just about everything.
