I had a hard time putting this one down. My feelings were mixed regarding the ending, but it was probably the most honest depiction of real life. Family drama, narcissistic parents, and how easily one choice can ruin everything. It‘s interesting how it‘s not usually the greedy who suffer the consequences. What makes someone a good person isn‘t always as simple as it seems.

Initially I found this read difficult to get into. No doubt the writing itself is beautiful, I just found it hard to relate to I suppose. Then I picked it up again and couldn‘t put it down. There is much to be learned from what we don‘t at first understand. Towards the end I couldn‘t stop marking pages and rereading passages. This one will stay with me, I‘m sure.

I had to read this passage many times over. What a world we live in.

While the overall tone is not one that I would necessarily consider inspiring, maybe even a bit defeatist... her story was fascinating and one that needs to be told. In many ways I found myself relating to her experiences, but in other ways I wished that she would take responsibility for her choices. Either way, I sit here pondering her experience and reflecting on my own which I think makes it a must read.

This was beautifully written- I was brought to tears at a few points. Human connection, permanence, love and loss.
