YouReviewers think Sara Barnard’s ‘Beautiful Broken Things’ is “heartbreaking” and “full of emotion”

Sara Barnard’s ‘Beautiful Broken Things’ turned us into beautiful broken things with such a powerfully emotional read. A very tender and thoughtful depiction of friendship and all the feels that come with maintaining relationships through personal growth and change.


Hoo! Yeah, this one hit us right in the guts. But we also wanted to hear what YOU GUYS thought of it too. We sent out copies to the lucky winners of our YouReview draw and asked that a review was posted on social media.
