Blog tour White Chalk by Pavarti K. Tyler
Chelle isn’t a typical 13-year-old girl—she doesn’t laugh with friends, play sports, or hang out at the mall after school. Instead, she navigates a world well beyond her years.
Life in Dawson, ND spins on as she grasps at people, pleading for someone to save her—to return her to the simple childhood of unicorns on her bedroom wall and stories on her father’s knee.
When Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle is desperate to believe his arrival will be her salvation. So much so, she forgets to save herself. After experiencing a tragedy at school, her world begins to crack, causing a deeper scar in her already fragile psyche.
Follow Chelle’s twisted tale of modern adolescence, as she travels down the rabbit hole into a reality none of us wants to admit actually exists.
Chelle is a teenager who is lost because she doesn't have dreams or goals and she just wants to love and to be loved and she wants the attention of her parents.She feel the need to be important or special for someone.
Her father is an alcoholic so she can't count on him or on his promises and she knows that but she still feel the need to believe in him and his promises.Her mother is busy with work.I understand her because I think that is hard to live with an alcoholic and the same time to work.She thinks that her daughther understand her and they are a team and they helped each other.
She meet Troy Christiansen and she feel that is the one and she thought that she will be with Troy because he always was there with her and he was caring and loving and friendly and she feel that she can be special for him and she was happy until he got a girlfriend Xiu.She wanted to hate a Xiu but she couldn't because Xiu is beautiful carefree and friendly.
She have an affair with Mr Harrison her professor and he only use her and she know that but she feel beautiful and powerful and special even if she know that their relationship is wrong.I think that Mr Harrison is a coward because he didn't helped her when she needed his help.
I wished that she will confide in someone yeah she trusted an Cat her only true friend but not enough to tell her the true about her relationship with Mr Harrison and her feelings. I wished that someone to tell her that she is beautiful and special and important .The ending was unexpected and sad.
I really liked the book.This book made me feel sadness and angry.
