I enjoyed this book immensely, I actually had to stop reading it on the bus one day because I thought everyone is going to think I'm losing it, and I was, I hadn't brought enough tissues to keep up with the water coming from my eyes. I didn't pick it up for a couple of hours after that, just needed to digest it . I can't imagine living like poor Emmy. And how horrible mental health care was, is it still? Does anyone know? This was a short read, apart from the break I had to take.
I loved both Emmy and Sophie and I really liked Autumn, and although in the end Sophie's mom was not so nice, I did feel for her. She was doing the best she knew how. Again I don't know if this book was intended as a look at mental health, but it sure rang that way for me. There must be someone out there in this field that has a heart. I'm starting to feel like Chloe from The Sugar Queen, I'm reading books that are hitting too close to home. I've read Beth's books before and enjoyed them as well so I'm sure I'll continue, she just writes what I like to read. This is the last of my library books and now to hit the shelves.
