Still mulling this one over. It was an absolutely compelling read. My heart went out to Connie from the first page. Her treatment by the mental health system was horrifying, and the author's commentary on the treatment of poor people and people of color by society seemed all too real.
Even after my lengthy intermission (I had to return the book to the library, and then wait for the hold to work its way back to me), I found myself instantly caught up in it again.
The only thing I'm on the fence about is the ending, which felt a little unresolved - or maybe I'm just not satisfied with the resolution.
