Trigger Warning - depression, PTSD, suicidal thoughts etc.
How Biz is handling her father's death reminded me of how I dealt with mine. I may not have been as young as Biz, but the pain was still real.
Besides handling those emotions, she also is trying to come to terms with her feelings for her best friend Grace amoungst other teen age stuff.
There is so much going on in this book and I have to say its a beautiful written book but it deals with mental illness is such a raw way, it almost brought me to tears. Biz's pain jumps out to you and you really truly feel it. Biz deals with her anxiety by speaking to her father (who it turns out had his own demons).
Everyone who has ever suffered from mental illness and is also dealing with angst from those difficult teenage years.
I cant thank Bookish First enough for the ARC. This is a book that will stay with me for a while.
