Many of what Keyson writes resonates with my own struggles with depression and a general sense of not belonging. The book really affected me in ways that I felt it should not have, as in it forced me to face some of my own demons. However by the end of the book I was a little disappointed in the way in which it was sort of thrown out and it ended on a sarcastic and defensive note. It almost negated the struggles she faced, in my mind at least. Although perhaps the fact that she blew it off as being a young woman rather than actually facing up to her own personality / behavioral issues is what made this a more realistic account of the life of a young woman. It is hard to say, though I can say that I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to most women, young or old who have dealt with or are dealing with depression or other behavioral disorders.
