This book took me a little by surprise First of all, I liked the main character, Macy, very much, despite the fact that she appeared to be a tad difficult with her mother But much later in the story,

despite the fact that she appeared to be a tad difficult with her mother But much later in the story, you find out why I m getting ahead of myself though.I thought this was going to be a somewhat serious but cute book, but as soon as I met Sebastian, I realized this wasn t going to be quite what I was expecting As the story progressed though, I was great with that, because it ended up being so much , and having so muchdepth than what I thought it would have Sebastian was a great character, one with real flaws, real fears, real problems, and watching him struggle through those things made me like him so much as a character Sebastian s issues served two purposes for me as I read this book First, it allowed me to get to know Macy really well No, I meant to say that His issues are what cause Macy s true spirit to emerge, Second, it brought things out of her that the reader had no idea were there It uncovered an event you never suspected she d been through Watching her work through these things was heartbreaking, because she had to be convinced of what I, the reader, already knew.The story itself was wonderfully written, and the sensitive issues portrayed in the story were handled so well I thought the author did an amazing job juggling these things and treating them with the sensitivity they deserved It was a skillful bit of writing that Macy s character came across so well, despite the fact that she does things without knowing why she does them because she has yet to admit, even to herself, what would cause her to act the way she does.Again, amazing writing, a truly sensitive, poignant story, with a sweet but serious romance Great book To think I spent three days on this.Well,okay,it wasn t all terrible I don t wanna be a Debbie Downer, but God I don t know where to begin on this one Our MC, Macy Lyons, is at a party one evening with her friends and boyfriend when she bumps into the very mysterious Sebastian Ruiz They strike up what feels like an hour long conversation, which I assumed the author was trying to make philosophical and John Green esque, but it only came off as two stoned teenagers at a midnight rager, r To think I spent three days on this.Well,okay,it wasn t all terrible I don t wanna be a Debbie Downer, but God I don t know where to begin on this one Our MC, Macy Lyons, is at a party one evening with her friends and boyfriend when she bumps into the very mysterious Sebastian Ruiz They strike up what feels like an hour long conversation, which I assumed the author was trying to make philosophical and John Green esque, but it only came off as two stoned teenagers at a midnight rager, raving about planets.A few days after the party, Macy is still thinking about Sebastian, still enad by their perfect conversation, until she hears he s in the hospital The psych ward, to be exact She tries to visit him, but only those pre registered can visit Flash forward through some unnecessary bits, Macy has her ticket in, and although she met Sebastian once, she s off to visit him in the psych unit.AND HE WAS CRAZAAAAAAAY Kidding But here s the thing about Sebastian He is sojudgmentalHe s, as we know, in the psych unit but he just blatantlysnotson the people there, like he s better than them He s like, My roommate is crazy That girl likes to water the plants, even though they re fake What a nut Like, who are you He tried to commit suicide, but when Macy comes in, he s all lounging around in his joggers like he s too cool for society.Another worthy mention here, he d get all snappy with Macy for no reason, but she was too dumb to stick up for herself view spoiler He also choked out his ex girlfriend and thought an apology would be suitable Um,righthide spoiler Oh, and he d constantly try to stick his nose into Macy s past trauma with the oh so comforting, Tell me Tell me Tell me To put it simple, Macy is trash Sorry, but she is Although, I did feel touches of sympathy for her view spoiler over the whole sexual assault debacle hide spoiler She has no real redeeming qualities Before her boyfriend, Chris, she pounced on every other boy, had it out for her mother for absolutely no reason, and continuously stomped on her boyfriend to hangout with Sebastian Note Her boyfriend, Chris, is actually a real sweetheart, so why one would choose a Twix over a Godiva truffle is beyond me The only decent people in this story were the side characters Macy s best friend, Rebecca, who truly bend over backwards for her, Macy s mother, Macy s brother, Gavin, and his awkward crushee, Eliza If not for them, this story would be 100% bland.Would not read again Would probably not recommend either A similar read is Fault Line, though, and for the most part, it s pretty well written Check it out if you like @Download ¿ The Fix ⚸ One conversation is all it takes to break a world wide openSeventeen year old Macy Lyons has been through something no one should ever have to experience And she s dealt with it entirely alone On the outside, she s got it pretty good Her family s well off, she s dating the cute boy next door, she has plenty of friends, and although she long ago wrote her mother off as a superficial gym rat, she s thankful to have allies in her loving, laid back dad and her younger brother But a conversation with a boy at a party one night shakes Macy out of the carefully maintained complacency that has defined her life so far The boy is Sebastian Ruiz, a recovering addict who recognizes that Macy is hardened by dark secrets And as Macy falls for Sebastian, she realizes that, while revealing her secret could ruin her seemingly perfect family, keeping silent might just destroy her The Fix follows two good hearted teenagers coming to terms with the cards they were dealt It s also about the fixes we rely on to cope with our most shameful secrets and the hope and fear that comes with meeting someone who challenges us to come clean Loved this emotional story about honesty and connection Macy is a complicated, sometimes prickly, yet inherently likeable character with a chip on her shoulder and problems to confront She has much to sort out with family, friends and love and I rooted for her to succeed and find happiness on each of those levels This is great recommendation for lovers of darker contemporary YA. With an honest but gentle approach into Macy s world, THE FIX is emotional at times, heart warming and witty at others, and very well written with a strong voice I was captivated by the novel. 4.5 Stars on my blog I accidentally requested this title on Edelweiss thinking it was The Fixer, and I am extremely happy I did This book dealt with several sensitive issues that affect many young adults, and did it in a realistic way And in answer to several of the bad reviews I saw here on Goodreads, this book IS NOT ABOUT CHEATING THERE WAS NO CHEATING IN THIS STORY, and if you think there was, you didn t read the entire book I liked it because it had examples of several types of famil 4.5 Stars on my blog I accidentally requested this title on Edelweiss thinking it was The Fixer, and I am extremely happy I did This book dealt with several sensitive issues that affect many young adults, and did it in a realistic way And in answer to several of the bad reviews I saw here on Goodreads, this book IS NOT ABOUT CHEATING THERE WAS NO CHEATING IN THIS STORY, and if you think there was, you didn t read the entire book I liked it because it had examples of several types of families with different dynamics The scenes dealing with the issues were not overly dramatized for shock effect, like I have seen in many of the current issue related YA Contemporaries I would not recommend this for readers under 15 years of age Up until nearly the last section of the book I was thinking, wow, finally a book that deals with teenage sexual matters in a non explicit way, so 13 and 14 year olds can read it, but then there was one scene that was pretty explicit in its description, and that younger audience thought went out the window for me The reason this is being downgraded to a 4.5 on my blog is that the MC and her best friend used the terms whore and slut in a casual conversational way several times during the story The derogatory terms were not being used as a growth platforms, so that was a big no no for me, and it is pretty much frowned upon in YA Contemporary now I was approved for this review book via Edelweiss in return for an honest review I will be doing a mildly spoilery review on my blog and will add the link when it is posted I was lucky enough to get to read the ARC of this book and I LOVED it And I have to say, while I didn t know exactly where Ms Sinel was taking us from the initial pages of THE FIX, I m so glad I went there with her anyway Macy s journey was one I ll never forget I cried with her, screamed at her parents with her, and longed for the one person who just might understand the pain she d been through, all with her But it wasn t just Macy I fell in love with through every page turned All of the c I was lucky enough to get to read the ARC of this book and I LOVED it And I have to say, while I didn t know exactly where Ms Sinel was taking us from the initial pages of THE FIX, I m so glad I went there with her anyway Macy s journey was one I ll never forget I cried with her, screamed at her parents with her, and longed for the one person who just might understand the pain she d been through, all with her But it wasn t just Macy I fell in love with through every page turned All of the characters in this book were beautifully drawn and real and important to me, long after I finished reading it A definite must for anyone who loves heartfelt stories told with ease and grace Loved this one A painful story beautifully told. The Fix is an in between book for me I felt like the parts that I liked and didn t like were equal, thus I m giving it 3 stars It s very hard for me to describe or write a review for this book, so I m going to do a list review instead.What I liked The issues tackled abuse, drugs, mental ilness Rebecca the ever supportive friend The MC s relationship with Gavin, her little brother Darren and his observance What I didn t like The cheating, even though the main character doesn t own up The Fix is an in between book for me I felt like the parts that I liked and didn t like were equal, thus I m giving it 3 stars It s very hard for me to describe or write a review for this book, so I m going to do a list review instead.What I liked The issues tackled abuse, drugs, mental ilness Rebecca the ever supportive friend The MC s relationship with Gavin, her little brother Darren and his observance What I didn t like The cheating, even though the main character doesn t own up to it How things ended her relationships with her parents and Chris were left out hanging The story was slow at times It s really hard to review this book I didn t love it, but I didn t hate it either I may or may not recommend this book, since I think that this isn t for everyone If you think that the synopsis is something that intrigues you, then definitely try this out I received a copy from Edelweiss, In exchange for an honest review Macy and Sebastian were both okay characters, and I felt sorry for them at points, but I didn t love them There wasn t anything awfully wrong with this book, it just felt way too slow for me, which made the story drag It felt longer than what is was because of it, and when I got to the end I was quite relieved Overall, Not awful, but not very enjoyable for me.
