it was amazing
bookshelves: heavy-issues, young-adult-fiction
Read from June 21 to 22, 2012

** spoiler alert ** this is seriously heavy. cant deal (for obvious reasons) but am going to stick it out just to see how it ends ( i predict art as therapy)


ok art therapy - check. and i have this to say

violent relationship written in very realistic way - no excuses no making it out to be something else.

however i should NOT have read this.

anyone who has been in a physically violent relationship - dont read this. its too real it will freak you out. and ok maybe this is good, so if you read it and you havent experienced it, it will help you understand how this stuff goes. however if you are a survivor - as i am and many other women are - dont read this. its too upsetting becoz its very well written. and scary. becoz only those who went thru it know wat its like. even if you are over it or think you are - seriously dont go there. i guess this is a characteristic of a well written book. but its fucking scary coz it happens to millions of women.
