The ExceptionsFrom David Cristofano the Edgar Award nominated author of The Girl She Used to Be comes a poignant darkly witty story about the ties that bind us together and the choices that rip us apart No loose ends It's the Bovaro family motto As part of the Bovaro clan one of the most powerful and respected families in organized crime Jonathan knows what he must do take out Melody Grace McCartney the wom Ghosts among the real my friend Ghosts among the realOh my God This made me cry like a girl And I mean literally I haven't felt that way before in all my years spent on reading various kinds of books I was profoundly movedIt amazed me how David Cristofano got the courage to narrate a very similar story to his first; The Girl She Used to Be is merely the same as The Exceptions the only comparable points being the narrators and the additional scenes My God this is one hell of a record breaker Would you read something you've already read before? Definitely not right? But The Exceptions is really an exception It narrated the exact same thing that happened in the first book yet the difference in the narrator and the different perspective made a heart wrenching impact on the reader At first I was uite a bit disappointed because it began with Jonathan describing the life he had as a mafioso Interesting yes but not at all gripping Not yet you see As I progressed from one chapter to another following Jonathan as he followed Melody I began to feel enthralled by his unmistakable charm Cristofano's magic I just found myself reading The Girl She Used to Be only in different words; and enjoying itIn order to sustain this short bit of annoyance at the beginning you have to like the first book Which is not a challenge really Then on you goCharactersYou have to adore Jonathan Bovaro His character was very well developed I will distinguish him easily from other characters in all books I've read my whole life; he is alone A man of violence? check A man of looks? check A man of good will? check A man of bad will? check Scars? check Glasses? check The ultimate image of a mafioso was very intricately formed in my mind as I read word for word; in flesh and bone Plus the most profound side of him his heart So big man It peeks everytime he speaks in text While his undeniable wit gave me smile his loneliness etched in each word he said broke my heartMelody Grace McCartney here is Melody Grace McCartney In The Girl She Used to Be I thought I was able to fully understand her personality I was wrong obviously There was of this woman that I haven't seen during my first glimpse of her; she was human than I thought Some people may have hated her in the first book failing to comprehend her intentions and behavior; but here in Jonathan's words rest assured you'll be able to achieve full enlightenment She was lost in herself unable to come out and surface she was chained to her past and every identity she claimed every place she lived in stole pieces of her that she was never able to redeem not until this wonderful man arrived in her life to give everything back to herSean Douglas was deeper than I originally thought I've come to loathe him especially at the middle part when he beat the life out of Jonathan Then near end I've come to like him Guess you'll feel the sameThe rest of the famous family was emphasized Peter I think is adorable You have to like him even with his bloodlust so apparently accompanied with his every word Pop flesh than picture here And my man Randall Gardner Totally crackhead you may sayPlotHow Cristofano crafted this story astounds me continuously Did he think of writing a second novel even before he wrote the first or did it just come out of the valley after The Girl's success? I don't know but this is what I have to say he's brilliant I can't help remembering that clever movie franchise the Saw series where the writers were able to connect one story to another after only finishing the preceding one I wonder if Cristofano actually planned it The Girl was a puzzle with missing pieces and The Exceptions filled those pieces Like yin and yang you see Completely opposing forces with identical features different colors but same components fitting exactly togetherI am a little baffled at the fact that I was still thrilled to know what was going to happen even though I already knew because I've read The Girl While they were together in Renaissance while they raced towards Tenafly while they raced away from Tenafly Baffling yeah Cristofano's magic I say And of course after they parted in the bus station There goes the big lump that sat in my stomach for hours wondering what would become of Jonathan what would become of Melody would they meet again would there be a happy ending would there be not This is a story full of tension and suspense and tears for that matterview spoilerIt's a very heartbreaking heart wrenching tear sueezing throat clenching happy friggin' ending my amico hide spoiler

He was cursed to only ever love her from afar by his mafia family who wants her dead I don’t think I ever uite appreciated the romanticized violence I’d been reading as I did after I read The Exceptions Disillusioned yes but not at all ungrateful At first I was completely floored by some of the gruesome scenes – gruesomeness I had rarely encountered while reading romances For a while albeit a short while I was hesitant – worried as a blubber baby that it would be just too much for me I had an epiphany though I realized the books I usually read – the sugar coated stuff as I’ll now call them – was what I’d come to expect; though not nearly realistic I realized the heroes that would always fight nameless blatantly evil foes only until they cried ‘uncle’ and no further were fanciful Jonathan created a new sort of hero for me – one with tarnished armor One that was somehow in his imperfection all the perfect and human Jonathan was written beautifully – skillfully – and he captured my heart and just that easily influenced my emotions More than anything I think I appreciated Cristofano’s consistency I expected of course that Jonathan would – uite simply – turn his family in somewhere around the end then ride off into the sunset with Melody Of course being that this book does not strive to meet my expectations that does not happen Instead from the very beginning it is apparent how much Jonathan loves his family – that despite resenting their name he protects them with as much of his being as possible I am especially glad that Cristofano kept Jonathan treading the fine line between bad – loyalty – and good betrayal I felt Jonathan as easily and clearly as I hear my own thoughts – I felt his indecision I felt his connection to Melody and most importantly I felt his need for her to be free This need is what drew out that delicious tension – a tension I both hated and loved mind you – that gave the book its hard edge that made their relationship near impossible If I start on the second characters now I’d likely never end so I’ll just summarize them; brilliant All I can say is that despite 23 aggravating years before they truly find each otherand I mean downright frustrating despite the occasional gruesomeness I never thought I’d get close to reading –I don’t think I could ever uite capture the beauty of what David Cristofano wrote on those pages in this review I’ll leave that for the readers to discover I did cry like a baby not a sad baby though
