"A big, ambitious book whose characters stick in the reader's mind."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Reads fast, like a sudden surge of wind over the plains, and the book's momentum builds to tornado force."--USA Today
Set on the flat plains of Kansas, Paullina Simons's first novel concerns a teenage friendship between three girls, overshadowed by a tragedy that will change their world forever. This is the story of one of those girls, a story of abuse and recovery, despair and redemption, and above all of love. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Das Buch lebt einzig und allein von seiner Dramatik. Es ist weder spannend, noch lustig, noch traurig. Es ist einfach nur erschütternd und hat mich als Leser oft verzweifeln lassen. Und doch lässt mich das Schicksal Tullys nicht los sondern zwingt mich, ihr Seite für Seite zu folgen.
But why such a fuss over a first novel by an unknown american author? (whose two subsequent books, by the way, didn't even come close to Tully).One of the reasons I loved Tully was Tully herself: a one of a kind, special woman who grows up under horrible circumstances, but still learns how to survive, and even how to give and take love. A woman who got to me, for some reason, maybe just because she's tough and at the same time very vulnerable.
Paullina Simmons wrote her heart out in this book. Especially the second part of the novel is exquisite: in it you'll find a powerful love story, not a soap-opera kind of love story, but a true to life description of people and feelings. People who have to make choices and have to live with their choices afterwards. People who learn that love isn't a moment but a whole process, and who learn, in time, to appreciate what's important.
All in all, Tully is one of those books that'll take over your life for a couple of days. So chose a quiet weekend and read it.
Tully takes you on an emotional rollercoaster of a ride that I think every woman can relate to at some point in her life - an alarmingly unhappy childhood, the loss of a best friend and the heartbreakingly delicacy of being in love with two men at the same time. Beautifully written and pieced together so intricately, I turned the pages and walked beside Tully as she battled with the insanity of trying to decipher life and conquering the lessons that we all have to learn at one point or another.
This debut novel from Paulina Simons had me intrigued from the first line and kept me wrapped around it's little finger right to the closing word. I don't think I have, since reading that book, had my emotions wrung so completely. One minute my insides were screaming for Tully's pain while the next moment saw me positively glowing for the small victories she encountered in her battle to keep her head above water and not drown in the mediocracy of being "that girl" growing up in a small Kansas town. And when it seems that Tully finally has her life on track after such an unforgiving and violent upbringing, Jack comes home and brings with him the unbearable reminder that life was never meant to be easy...Lesen Sie weiter... ›
I am an avid reader, but don't get much time read anymore, I find myself reading only the first few chapters of books and then dumping it, if it doesn't capture my attention ( I would never usually do this! ) But with Tully, it drew me in straight away, I couldn't put it down and was reading it even at work as I loved this book so much. I will probably be re-reading it shortly & I never re-read books!
Definately read this book! Have I said it enough?
