This book was beautiful and brutal and very true! I have felt what Millie has felt. I have been stuck in a depressive holding pattern, thinking if I just buy the right clothes, deep clean my apartment, start doing yoga, then everything will change for me! I'll have a more meaningful and fulfilling life! I luckily broke out of the painful cycle eventually, and j think Millie does too, but it's about finding satisfaction in your true self.
