Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts Review!

First came love, then came marriage, and then...

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined. 

This is an incredible young adult read.
 The story tells about Tamsen Baird, a high school drop out and a teenage widow. When she was 17 she got married and thought she would live a long and happy life with her husband. For 6 whole weeks she had everything she ever wanted. Then her world was ripped apart and she was left shattered and broken.
This story is about love, loss, grief an the ability to push past and move forward. This story truly touched me and had an emotional impact. Some scenes had me on the verge of tears as I could physically feel the pain Tamsen was in.
This novel is so much more than that. It is an inspiration and an insight that everything will be okay if you give it time and let yourself live.
4 Stars
