Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.
So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?
Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.
Please Ignore Vera Dietz was exceptionally moving. At first glance I was unsure if it would be something I’d be interested in reading. It’s definitely not something I’d typically reach for in a library or book store.
As soon as I started it, I knew it was my mojo. I loved the plot and the characters. Charlie was strange to say the least, but Vera and his friendship was gripping, and unlike anything we’ve ever heard of. It was on the verge of love and you were rooting for them but at the same time his character made me so frustrated. Charlie was sweet and then he was arrogant. There were “Awh moments” and then “You’re kidding right?”
First of all, falling for your best friend is bold and scary as hell, trust me.
Been There Done That. Got My Heart Broke. Most of the time, it doesn’t end well. Either they don’t feel the same way and it gets awkward or they do and you’re constantly scared you’re about to f*** up. Being scared, Constant worrying and overthinking makes you f*** up even more, making the situation worse. Just Being Honest. Y’all should know wassup.
The characters were very well developed and real. You can apply your life to theirs and relate on so many levels. At least I did? Everyone has their good and bad days so it made the characters seem like real people, we make mistakes, we say/do things we shouldn’t etc. As a teenager I felt connected with their story, I could relate to some of the things that happened. The drama takes you to highschool, I swear. You can’t help but think of all the stupid teenager-y things you’ve done.
I must warn you, some of the things Charlie gets himself into is bizarre and low-key disturbing. #PossibleTriggerWarning I think this book was very special. I wish the intense scenes were a little more vivid but overall they weren’t terrible. Visualizing came easily but weren’t drawn out enough. If you’re looking for a book that is the in between of “light” and “intense” then this would be a good choice for you.
-I miss you guys so much and can’t wait to get back home and catch up! ❤ Spreading Love all over the world.
