Careful (The Careful, Quiet, Invisible Series)

Careful - Isobella Jade Another heartfelt story sure to make you see things differently, Careful takes a dive into what it's like for those you love left behind after your death.What I really enjoyed most about this book is the different perspective. After Estella's unexpected death, she dwindles with the living seeing the aftermath of her death. This part I loved. Watching Estellas parents grieve, the fights in school with her friends and watching her crush fade away, all makes for a great story. The emotions swirled inside me as I saw people spark fights over a lost taken so soon. I loved the loyalty that Estella's friends gave throughout the whole story. The stuck by their friend and made she she lived on in everything they did.There really is much going in the story other than watching other move on with their lives after Estella is gone. And this part is my gripe. Other than Estella's death is cause by texting and driving, I don't see the point of hanging out watching other live for so long. I get to watch it from the beginning for a few days but Estella lives in other life for a whole month. Half-way through the book, it felt repeated. I can find the appreciation in watching the grieving but after a while it felt too much.Careful portrays a powerful story of lost taken too soon. Emotions bombard the reader giving them a front row seat in a roller coaster. Sentimental and bittersweet, Careful is good.
