This book dealt with heavier issues than I was expecting, but that just made me like it even more. Elise definitely has some issues, but I also found her really easy to relate to. She was a realistic character, as were all of the other characters in this book, which I appreciated. A lot of the time you get a fully developed main character but rather flat side characters. That was not the case here.

I had to go back and look up this quote, but it's one of my favorites. (view spoiler).

“Don't be special." That's what I would say to my younger self if I could pinpoint the moment when I went astray.


That's absolutely true. If you want to fit in, you can't be special. You just have to decide if fitting in is worth giving up what makes you special. I wish I had been able to read this book when I was in high school.
