This Is Not Forgivenessby Celia Rees
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Everyone says that Caro is bad-but Jamie cant help himself. Gorgeous, impulsive, and unconventional, Caro is totally different from all the other girls and Jamie cant believe that she wants to be his girlfriend. But Jamie soon realizes there is more to Caro-much more. Consider: How she often disappears for days at a time, or the small scars on her wrists, or her talk about revolution and taking action, not to mention the rumors about the other guys....
Jamies also worried about Rob, his older brother. Back from Afghanistan and traumatized from an injury there, Rob seems to be living in a world of his own and is increasingly difficult to reach.
Which is why its so strange that Rob and Caro seem to know one another. And why it feels so dangerous that theyre being awfully secretive.

The plot is intriguing and important in our day and age. However, I couldn’t get over the fact that I did not like the characters. In my opinion, it’s hard to like a book and a story if you don’t like the characters. Jamie doesn’t know whats good for him. Caro is manipulative. Rob is downright lost. Celia Rees created three very unique and dynamic characters, but I hated them. The narrating format was confusing as well. I didn’t understand the first few chapters. T he beginning didn’t make sense until the end. The setting was also not very clear. It took me a while to realize that these were English teens. I found out by their dialogue but their actual location wasn’t very clear and I couldn’t picture the scenery Jamie would describe. I didn’t particularly like the ending. The closure between the characters could have been better, but than there wouldn’t be a point to This Is Not Forgiveness.
