free read Like a Thorn ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Clara Vidal Ì 9 summary NNo one understands that Mélie is treated like a thorn in her mother’s side Since Mélie’s mother isn’t capable of change it’s up to Mélie to find the strength to break free Like a Thorn approaches many difficult topics with a surprisingly light hand A mother who is obviously suffering from some kind of mental disorder it never is specified and a daughter who develops autism whether in reaction to her mother s vacillating regard or naturally The novel is desperately sad and I felt for Melie as she navigates her childhood and then adolescence not knowing how to react to the kind of mother she ll find waiting for her when she gets home from school I was always afraid that she would try to kill herself if things continued in the same vein Vidal successfully portrays how alone Melie is even when she is supposedly surrounded by people who love her and only want the best for herThe most tragic scene is when she does reach out for help from her maternal grandmother and ends up spurned and lectured as the grandmother takes offence at the criticism shown her daughter Melie s mother The novel doesn t give any neat answers or happy endings it just gives a glimpse of what might be a possible solution to Melie s problem therapy It is refreshing to read something like this that portrays therapy as a positive thing as a step in the right directionI recommend this book for kids who are having trouble at home It seems like a good way to familiarize them with such difficult themes Even though the subject is heavy there will be many aspects of Melie that children will identify with
