T.M. Frazier has been one of my all-time favorite authors for a while now and The Outskirts just solidified why. She has this uncanny ability to pull you into a story and make it to where you never want to come up for air. Everything about this novel was amazing. It was uniquely T.M. Frazier in the most refreshing way.
The only thing I think you, as a reader should be warned about before going into this novel is that it is in fact part of a duet and it ends on a pretty jaw dropping cliffhanger. But I believe that’s just part of what makes T.M. unique in her own way….she can get me to read a novel with a freakin’ cliffhanger and I still rate the darn thing a 5 star read!
Sawyer has been secluded for her entire life by her parents and the life they lead in a very overzealous religious group (basically christian extremists). So on the day of her mother’s funeral she gets this epiphany…
“If I kept on living the way I was. The same way Mother had lived. Subservient. Submissive. Abused. Battered. Then that sermon, those very same generic words and lies about a life she never lived, would be spoken at another funeral someday. Mine.”
This led her to venture out…leave the world as she knew and set off to find out who her mother was before she became the woman who Sawyer had to help bury. I loved this character….she was real and the naivety that surrounded her didn’t seem too far-fetched. It made her endearing and adorable, but don’t let that think she isn’t feisty because she is. She has a strong spirit that you can’t help but love and connect with.
We meet Finn at his most broken time. He’s an emotional shell and has managed to push away the people who love him the most. So, it comes as no surprise that when Sawyer waltzes into his life he’s thrown for a loop and wants to hate her immediately. But he eventually realizes that she’s not someone you can hate because she’s just so darn different from the people that you’re used to. Finn, to me, was the anti-hero at first….the broken man I wanted someone to save. His story is heartbreaking and when things finally come out about why he is the way he is you can’t help but fall more in love with him.
“I’ve never met anyone like you. I’ve never even seen anyone like you. These freckles… This mouth… You make me want things, Say. Crave things. Things I haven’t thought about in a long time.”
Overall, this book was beautifully written and flowed perfectly. The characters were amazing and the plot was executed in such a way that left me literally wanting to chunk the book across the room when there was no more to read! I’m desperately waiting (and maybe stalking Mrs. Frazier) in hopes that maybe this book will release sooner than what’s expected. Haha…because I need the rest of this duet!!!!!!!
