Remember the places you touched me.

Ben touched seven parts of Mira Cillo: her palm, hair, chest, cheek, lips, throat, and heart. It was the last one that broke her. After Mira's death, she sends Ben on a quest to find notes she left him in the seven places where they touched--notes that explain why she and her sister, Francesca, drowned themselves in the quarry lake. How Ben interprets those notes has everything to do with the way he was touched by a bad coach years ago. But the truth behind the girls' suicides is far morecomplicated, involving a dangerous infatuation, a deadly miracle, and a crushing lie. BEAUTIFUL BROKEN GIRLS is a stunning release from Kim Savage, the author of the critically acclaimed After the Woods.

I am so confused about this story.
It sounded promising in the description.
But I was so confused while reading it.
The storyline was all over the place and just confusing to read. There was barely anything about Ben and Mira (I needed to go back and look at their names because it barely talked about them) and too much about Mira's sister.
It made no sense and was just a waste of time to read. It was all about magic and religion?
If you want to read a story like this read "13 Reasons Why" it has a much more promising storyline and actually makes sense and gets straight to the point.

This story was well-written, but there was a little too much going on in the plot. If you want a really detailed, intricate suicide-explanation story, this might be for you. But know there are a lot of bumps and plot-holes along the way.
