Love You, Hate You, Miss You by Elizabeth Scott
Amy thinks she murdered her best friend.
So does everyone around her, except her parents and councilor. She has a major drinking problem and was forced to go to a “crazy house” after the accident. No one understand Amy, she feels like she is alone in the world and only alcohol is the solution, it makes everything better, it has the power to make her forget everything that has happened around her.
She hates her parents because their so in love with each other, which is absolutely not normal and it makes her almost invisible around them. Amy hates her shrink, although she makes Amy realize that its not her fault, people make choices and some of them are not always good.
Love You, Hate You, Miss You is about dealing with the past. Walking around school, people staring, whispering and thinking murderer, Amy feels like dying and never coming back to school again. Maybe some people and make her feel like she can still go on and not blame everything on herself for the rest of her life.
