By Alex Coleman, I really first have to say the book cover is so childish , that to me it made this book, frivolous and a mind numbing read was what's to be expected, but it wasn't there a deep unlined message through this book, and that was "do not suppress your feeling" it leads to self destruction and loathing, but once you face the issues you could have an amazing life, just open your eyes.
