it was amazing
bookshelves: changed-me

I love this book. I just plain love it.

The mother's pain, love, and hard work. How she didn't cry until her daughter died.
Nancy's siblings and the pain she caused them.
Her parent's marriage and how they made it through it all.
How Sid was so devoted to her that he killed her.

This book has so many controversial topics, and I love bringing it up as to further support my opinions.
Mental illness, assisted suicide, family issues, and the differences between love and lust.

Even more interesting, I find, is that it's told from her mother's perspective. I believe any of us could believe that Nancy is troubled--but it's truly amazing to hear it from the person who gave birth to her.
