Just like in Best Kept Secrets, there were times where I had a really hard time liking the main character. While I understand Eden's anger at her mother, at times her behavior towards her mother and step-father was truly deplorable. And when she took it out on Jack? I was ready to be done with her. But just when I couldn't stand it any further, Eden realized the error of her ways. I know it sounds bad, but even with her character flaws, Outside the Lines is a very well written novel. Written in the alternating voices of Eden and her Father you truly get to see both sides of this story. Mental illness is one of the last disabilities to gain understanding and acceptance with the public and the author did a really good job of bringing light to that injustice.

Outside the Lines is another home run for Amy Hatvany. Her talent for creating thought provoking story lines with somewhat flawed characters is evident with every word written in Outside the Lines. If you are looking for your next Book Club read, consider Outside the Lines, it is sure to generate great discussions.
