This week we have Hopelessly Imperfect by Gabriela Cabezut

Broken hearts can be mended…or shattered beyond repair…



Cancer is a beast.Hopelessly Imperfect by Gabriela Cabezut

 It’s ugly, savage, and has no mercy.

 Cassie learned this all too well while watching her mother slowly deteriorate, one agonizing day at a time…

With the desire to make her mother’s last year the best it can be, she works to be the perfect daughter. Every character trait, witty joke, like and dislike—Cassie molds herself to be what her mother would love most.

But in the end, it still isn’t enough…

After years of pretending, Cassie has no idea who she really is. When her mother slips away, Cassie falls into a deep depression, and thoughts of suicide become her most pressing threat. After a failed attempt, she seeks help, and is eventually able to return to life at home.

Going through senior year as the girl whose mom died sucks…

With her father picking up the pieces of his own heart, and Cassie back in school, she’s able to make a few new friends—one of them being Nathan Rivers. A little quiet, strong, and with inner demons of his own, Cassie can’t help but be intrigued. And as she grows closer to Nathan, the reasons for their mutual attraction slowly unveil.

Pain sometimes feels impossible to cope with. It’s consuming, saturating, and all-encompassing.

As Cassie and Nathan struggle to heal, can they learn to forgive and accept the past, and possibly find happiness in being Hopelessly Imperfect…?

The house looked the same as it did when I left. The front porch had one too many potted plants arranged on the sides of the entrance, and Mom’s eccentric taste was evident as you walked inside. Our home was decorated in a variety of styles. Most of the furniture was country style. A few abstract paintings hung on the walls. A wide array of different orchids were scattered throughout the room, and all the pots holding the plants were different, from color to form and height. Some looked like small vintage buckets, while others were painted in bright colors. Mom loved plants, and orchids were her favorites. Every part of the house had her touch in one way or another. My heart pounded as I looked around.
The brown, faded sofas were still in the same place. The TV controller was on the dark wooden table in the same spot Mom always wanted us to put it so we wouldn’t lose it. The plants were watered, and one or two were flowering. It was as if she were still there. For a moment, I expected her to walk out of the kitchen, drying her hands on a dish towel, smiling that beautiful smile of hers. Only that didn’t happen.
