Smiles can hide the harshest of pains
Told in three parts, The Day She Cried is the story of how hate and ignorance changed the lives of Rome and Courtney forever. It's about how one girl suffered in silence and yet her presence, or lack of one, resonated with everyone. It was about seeing beyond the mask that covers and shields, discovering hidden truths. It was the tale of how one girl smiled every day, hiding her utter devastation and the holes in her heart.

While I tried to fall in love with this story, I found it to be a bit disjointed and dysfunctional. It seemed that Courtney loved being bullied. She kept allowing herself to be subjected to abuses in her attempts to be liked. And rather than be true to herself or stand up for herself or even really like herself, she continued to be herded in directions that were obviously nowhere she wanted to be. I wanted to feel bad for her, but I had to hold back my contempt. I wanted to sympathize, but all I could do was stay baffled. I get that she's young. I get that this is the typical experience of far too many young people today. But where was her mom in all of this? Other than a few remarks that showed evidence that her mom cared about her and defended her, I didn't see anything that told me of her mom teaching her some self-respect. Insecure and insignificant pretty much sums up what I thought of Courtney. And Rome? He was a broken boy set on terrorizing the terrorized. Even after coming to his senses, he still acted out in ways that were hurtful and hateful. I wanted someone to talk to these kids because the dysfunction and drama was insane!

I think K Webster did an incredible job of capturing how singular traumatic events can not only shape us, but how they can affect those around us. The way she illustrated the hurt these characters felt was painful to read but I did end up enjoying it. I just didn't love how these characters were portrayed. I'm a huge fan of this author and I look forward to diving into even more of her books!

Synopsis
She was my first love.
She was my first hate.
The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty.
Until I dimmed her light for good…
Or so I thought.

Now she’s back.
Cracked. Broken. Lost.
And for the first time in a long time, I feel free.
Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future.

Her misery is my music.
Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating.

For so long, all I’ve done is hate her.
So why do I love her?
