Y use a friend to navigate a life swimming with pain and loss and all the lovely moments in between And then he meets Naima and everything’s changed just not in the way he or she expects Candace Ganger's Six Goodbyes We Never Said is no love story If you ask Naima it’s not even a like story But it is a story about love and fear and how sometimes you need a little help to be brave enough to say goodby DNF at 45% I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review My thoughts and opinions are my own Any uotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished productI understand that Naima is grieving but that doesn't excuse her behavior Her OCD and GAD as mentioned in the synopsis are aspects of her life that she struggles with but her treatment of Nell was inexcusable Nell has been in her life for nearly a decade obviously trying to make a family with her stepdaughter and Naima was intentionally hurtful and unaccepting I know there are children that behave similarly in real life but it was very frustrating to read about Nell made an effort to learn Naima's uirks and preferences trying to be there for her however she could but Naima was cold and indifferent I really disliked this aspect of the story and the portrayal of their relationshipor why I use sarcasm and blatant disgust for her as a means of coping with all the things I hate about myself It has nothing to do with her I decide this is the first thing I like about her—how she ignores the very real fact that I do in fact like her but don’t you dare tell herNaima's attitude in general left a lot to be desired She was easily annoyed by others and only ever thought about herself and what she wanted She was intentionally cruel and hurtful which made me unsympathetic to her feelings I'm not sure why Dew was so fascinated by this grumpy girl that only cared about her own miseries but he was determined to befriend her despite the snarls and cutting comments Dew was endlessly kind and thoughtful and he always managed to put himself in other people's shoes He imagined how they must be feeling in this or that scenario and he reacted accordingly He was patient with Faith his new sister understanding that she needed to be shown love despite her outbursts He noticed fear and pain where others saw anger and aggression I thought Dew was a remarkable character and enjoyed his relationship with his adoptive family His mental flashbacks and remembered sayings really made him a uniue and memorable characterI was a little confused by Naima's family and their dynamics Her dad would stay with his parents while she lived with Nell and Christian her stepmother and stepbrother? Did he just stay with them briefly before deployments? Occasionally when Naima talked about him it was like he lived separately from her even when he wasn't deployed Maybe I misread something or the ARC was missing a detail or two but I often found myself wondering where everyone was when the past was reflected on or mentionedEven Naima's grandparents kept Nell at a distance They were polite and civil when she was around but it was clear everyone wanted her to leave so they could reform their unit without her Nell was married to their son for seven years She has gone above and beyond for Naima yet she's still treated like an outsider Naima's father is also to blame since he purposefully kept Nell out of the loop or secretly confessed to his daughter that his wife and stepson wouldn't understand something He perpetuated the problemHiccup the dog had cataracts and was deaf in one year but he was also violent He attacked people's legs and bit until he pierced the skin This is not okay It's really not okay when the dog is around children Naima's grandparents should have been responsible with the dog but he's aggressive with others on multiple occasionsI really liked that the author chose to tackle mental health and the realities of living with a mind that's not entirely your own I don't know what it's like to feel compelled to do things a certain way or a specific number of times and I've never experienced social anxiety or an inability to breathe in large crowds I thought those aspects of the story were wonderfully written and explained; however Naima was a difficult character to like She's mean because she can get away with it and people let her because it's easier than the alternativeOriginally posted at Do You Dog ear? on September 30 2019

Six Goodbyes We Never SaidTwo teens meet after tragedy and learn about love loss and letting goNaima Rodriguez doesn’t want your patronizing sympathy as she grieves her father her hero a fallen Marine She’ll hate you forever if you ask her to open up and remember him “as he was” though that’s all her loving family wants her to do in order to manage her complex OCD and GAD She’d rather everyone back the eff off while s 35 starsI had mixed feelings about this book On the one hand I really enjoyed how it explored topics that tend to be under dealt with in the sphere of YA OCD PTSD and losing a parent I truly felt for the characters and I believe the author provided a genuine insight into who they were and did a good job building the two main charactersBut I feel like because of this the rest of the story fell away and there wasn’t really a cohesive plot and other side characters were neglected So at times the book was a bit boring because the only thing that is keeping it together are these two characters but I felt like at times it could have been engaging I also feel like the writing style was a bit underdeveloped and disjointed at times and the formatting also made it hard to figure out whose point of view the book was coming fromAll in all I think this book had potential to be really great with the development of the author’s ability but I enjoyed it; it was a hard hitting novel that left me with much to think after reading itI received this book on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
