Saving Daisy is the second critically novel by Phil EarleHEROIC Phil Earle's hugely anticipated third novel is out on April Daisy's mum is gone Her dad refuses to talk about it As far as Daisy's concerned it's all her fault As her life starts to spiral out of control panic leads to tragedy and Daisy's left aloneBut sometimes the kindness of a stranger can turn things aro Saving Daisy is an emotionally charged and powerful read from the British author of Being Billy Be warned now that you ll need to have a box of tissues beside you while you re reading this book because it will rip your heart outPhil Earle s writing is unflinchingly honest He s not afraid to tackle difficult or emotive topics such as death and bereavement rape bullying drinking and other such issues His background as a care worker is obvious here when reading about the main character Daisy and the experiences she goes through He writes sensitively about her and her issues whilst also portraying a realistic view of life in a therapeutic community for teenagers I thought the relationship she had with her key worker Ade was one of great trust It was obvious that not only did Ade care deeply about Daisy and her road to recovery but it was touching to see how much Daisy came to value Ade s friendship by the end of the bookSome parts of the story made for difficult reading and it was hard at times to see how much Daisy blamed herself for not only her mother s death but also for many of the things that happen to her Trying to correct the way she thinks about herself and establish a positive outlook for the future is one of the struggles that she has to face I found the ending and overall message of the book to be full of hope showing that there s always a way through the pain for everyone no matter how bleak a person s future can look and no matter what someone has had to go through Saving Daisy is not a light read but it s one that will stay with you long after turning the last page It s heartbreaking at times and will take you on an emotional rollercoaster of a ride but it s worth every second and is a book I would definitely recommend to others
