Book Review #620 - Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison


My Rating: 3/5

Source: Bought

Buy: The Book Depository


Bridget Duke is the uncontested ruler of her school. The meanest girl with the biggest secret insecurities. But when new girl Anna Judge arrives, things start to fall apart for Bridget — her friends don’t worship her as attentively, teachers don’t fall for Bridget’s wide-eyed ‘who me?’ look, and the one boy she’s always loved, Liam Ward, can barely even look at her.

When a desperate Bridget drives too fast and crashes her car, she ends up in limbo — facing everyone she’s wronged. Though she might end up dead, Bridget has one last shot at redemption and to right the wrongs she’s inflicted on the people who mean the most to her.

But Bridget’s about to learn that sometimes, saying you’re sorry just isn’t enough…

I really didn't expect much at all from this book. The synopsis made it sound similar to other YA books like If I Stay and Before I Fall. Whilst I wouldn't say this book is as good as those mentioned above, it does set itself apart from them with an unique and intriguing plot. 

Bridget, the protagonist is a character that grew on me. I didn't like her at first but by the end of the book I felt like she won me over. Bridget was rather selfish and insecure to begin with but emerged as a strong character by the end. 

Overall, this is a book that is not really going to stand out nor will it probably be a book that I will reread but I am glad I read it though.
