Blue Sisters by Coco Mellors – Our Review


Our Review…

Blue Sisters is one of my favourite books this year, and I just love the writing of Coco Mellors.

The Blue Sisters are estranged and living their lives, but the shock death of Nicky, their beloved sister, has shaken them to their core.

The sisters couldn’t be more different from one another, and yet they are forced to return to pack up Nicky’s apartment and confront their own brokenness and the barriers that divide them.

Avery, the oldest, is a well-regarded lawyer, self-made, and an overachiever who is pragmatic and measured, hiding her once addict past, lives with her wife in London.

Bonnie is a bouncer who can well and truly hold her own, but desperately broken by her defeat in a profession is guarded.

While Lucky, the youngest, is a model in Paris and is being crushed under the demands of her wild party life.

It is when they pack up Nicky’s apartment that they battle to make sense of their own disappointments, regrets, and a painful childhood and even begin to process their insurmountable loss of Nicky.

This is a magnificent novel about love, loss, grief, and the power of connection and acceptance.

Profound, powerful, and all too relatable. Loved it.
