Each character in the book carries deep emotional wounds--Eve's torture, Finn's camp experience, Charlie's brother's suicide--but they are all coping with them differently. How is PTSD handled in the book?

message 2: by Lyn (new) - added it

Lyn | 17 comments Hmmm... they were working through the trauma together; each one had their own manifestation - Finn fought, Eve drank, for Charlie it was sex - I think the author did a good job of painting that picture but it was really wrapped in a nice bow by the end.

Elizabeth | 7 comments I also appreciated how the author depicted PTSD responses in these different ways. I way of showcasing mental health even when it wasn't the true focus of the book itself.
