Wow. This book. I genuinely cannot put this book into words so review is going pretty hard.
i. can't. even. explain.
I was reading this on the plane back from Thailand which was 12 hours long so I wasn't at my best. ARH THIS BOOK. I don't know what made this book so amazing. Maybe it was the characters, although Suzanne did vex me at points, maybe it was the bond, maybe it is just that Sara Barnard is an amazing writer but something in that book made it my new favourite book ever. It is such a poignant and heart-wrenching book which made me cry (and as I mentioned in my last book review is very rare). The characters in the book are so well-developed, Suzanne in particular that I somewhat expect her to be a real person.
This book deals with mental illnesses, including self-harm and suicide, and domestic physical abuse and whilst I have very fortunately never encountered these topics, I have friends who sadly have dealt with some of these topics so I have seen first-hand what they are like, and correct me if I'm wrong but it seemed like an accurate representation.
I would recommend this book to 12+ as it does contain mature themes, particularly fans of Everything, Everything and All The Bright Places.
read this book!
