This book is hard to get through at times, but only because I think it is honest about a certain type of person - a very negative person that feels sorry for themselves and doesn't realize what is going on around them. It's hard to look at the world through that person's eyes and feel compassion - not this book is asking for forgiveness, or even really understanding. I think it's just showing the reader what life looks like for Olive and through the growth and change she is able to accomplish. I felt like I really was able to walk in someone else's shoes in reading this book.
