It has been seventy-five days, since the accident that caused the death of her best friend, Julia. Amy has been at Pinewood, she has been recovering from Alcohol dependency and trying to recover from the absence of the only person that ever completely understood her. When she gets out of rehab, she is asked by her shrink to keep a journal. Amy writes letters to Julia. She must deal with her past in order to realize what really happened and that it wasn't all her fault.
I love Elizabeth Scott. Her writing can light and fluffy or serious and thought provoking. This book was definitely on the latter of the two. Amy's guilt, regret, loneliness, and resentment were really realistic and common in anyone something similar happened. The letters to Julia and flashbacks were full of emotion and well done. Scott's writing fit the book very well. The focus of friendship with both it's positive and the adverse side effects of it. It also displayed all of the awkwardness of making friends and all the judgement that can be falsely is made. Scott makes a unique, thoughtful, and emotional novel. Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott is a must read.
