Get Well Soon
Get Well Soon | Julie Halpern
10 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
Anna Bloom is depressedso depressed that her parents have committed her to a mental hospital with a bunch of other messed-up teens. Here she meets a roommate with a secret (and a plastic baby), a doctor who focuses way too much on her weight, and a cute, shy boy who just might like her. But wait! Being trapped in a loony bin isn't supposed to be about making friends, losing weight, and having a crush, is it? In her fiction debut, Julie Halpern finds humor in the unlikeliest of places, and presents a character whose voiceand heartwill resonate with all of us who have ever felt just a little bit crazy.

I only got a half hour into this book and was so livid I couldn't read anymore. This book was a travesty to teens and mental health sufferers alike in its "look how chic I am talking about being depressed in a hospital." Bottom line: if mental health has touched your life in any way or you care about an accurate portrayal of it, this will only serve to frustrate you. There are way better books out there on this topic. I'll tag some in comments.

MiyakoBunny Such a cutie patootie! 1y
Bookworm83 Feel better, Pilot @DGRachel You are dashing, as always, Mr. Dexter (especially in that adorable hat) 😍 1y
ReadingRover @Bookworm83 lol we were trying on a bunch of his stuff to see what we could donate to the Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary. As you can see he was not into it 😝 1y
Bookworm83 Please tell me that hat was kept 🤞🏻😍 (edited) 1y
ReadingRover @Bookworm83 yes!!! But he has like 5 others so we still have to make some decisions. 1y
Bookworm83 Ok, phew! I absolutely love that he has too many hats ❤️ 1y
ReadingRover @Bookworm83 Seeing you put it in writing does make it seem pretty ridiculous! Then again he also has too many coats. Who am I to get between a basset and his snazzy wardrobe! 1y
Bookworm83 Not ridiculous at all! He is one stylin hound 😎 🐾 🐶 1y

I got about 15 pages in: which isn‘t a good indication as to if the book is good or not. I just wasn‘t that interested in the character and the writing from the beginning. Maybe it‘ll be something I have to try later on, next year possibly?

Pickpick

This book was easy to read. Did give my some flashbacks to my teen years. Overall, I liked the book. I find it interesting that the author based it on herself and that she is a school librarian.
