Official Review: Backcomb & Tattoo by Shea R Embry

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Sounds like an endearing story about the power of friendship. I like the idea that the main character decided to keep her illness a secret because I think she is able to have more of an authentic experience. Exposing her illness could hinder the light spirit of her friends. Great review!
I had not thought of it that way. I was constantly wondering why she did not reveal it. Thanks for the eye-opening thought. And of course, thanks for stopping by to comment!!

A nice story in the review up there but it seems women are a bit more fragile and emotional, wish to read more of non fiction though.

Having a terminal illness will make one fragile, I think. It's the way in which the genders react that is different. Also, if you think about it, people are unique in the way they react to unfortunate incidents in life. I understand why you wish to read non-fiction. It's more rooted in reality. Thanks for the review!!

Wonderful review. Aunt Mary Opal seems like such a remarkable woman. I'm curious to know what the secrets are.

Thanks for the review and highlighting the Bechdel test, it’s my first time to hear of it. It brings out the bright side of women’s friendships. Thanks for the nice review.
