So the story is all tell not show. Most of it is just big data dumps of information. Oh, you need to know what is happening now? Well let me just give you all the information in a not so good way. Plus the conversations in this book were painful to read as they do not read as realistic. Not good.
This is the story of Alexandria who has been locked up in the nuthouse, but now she is out. She still thinks she is crazy, but she can't be in there anymore. She moves in with her brother and meets some new people who she becomes instant friends with. Oh, and Luka who is apparently a love interest, but was hardly in the story. At one point Alexandria says she might be in love with Luka and at that moment I thought "oh yeah. I forgot about him..." and also really?? You spent like two seconds with the guy and he dropped out after than and suddenly you are somehow in love? I don't understand. It wasn't even insta-love. It felt like suddenly she was in love with a random person...odd.
Alexandria is also incredibly stupid and whiney! Oh goodness gracious she liked to whine a lot. It was super annoying. So there are some bad guys who are coming for her, she knows this and knows she has some powers and stuff and what does she do? Nothing. No trying to learn things or prepare for the bad guys or anything like that. Nope, better to do nothing and just whine about everything instead. That is a great plan. Oh she was annoying. At one point she is staying at Luka's as that is the safest place for her, she knows this and knows that she should stay there, but she doesn't think twice about leaving. Oh, bad guys are after me and I am safe as long as I stay here? Eh, might as well leave, and not tell anyone cause then I could just whine some more about poor poor me if something happens. Ugh.
Now my favorite part of this story was Luka even though he is hardly in it. He is the only one I could really picture or felt like I knew at all. He was so cute. He is this big, tough guy who speaks broken English with a Romanian accent. Love! I wish he would have been in the story more. It definitely would have made it a more enjoyable read.
Really I was expecting this book to more of a mystery. Like what is really going on? Is she really crazy? Who are these other people? Instead it felt very piecemeal and like you don't get the full story, just these long explanations at times. It is just Alexandria telling you again and again and again how she is crazy, how she was in the nuthouse and she had to get out, and is now out. How she is not comfortable with real life, how she is mad at her mom for leaving, how everything is just so so hard, poor, poor Alexandria. I couldn't deal with her and since everything was just told to me I couldn't connect to much of anything in the story. Not good.

Not quite YA in content, but reading a bit like one, this book follows the Alex as she adjust to life after being locked away to deal with her mental issues. As she begins a normal life in a seemingly normal town, new mysteries come out of the woodwork, and she realizes she may not be as crazy as she thought.
With a supporting cast of characters worthy of any budding reluctant heroine (including a super hot boy with an accent, a best friends we'd all LOVE to have, and a family that feels real in its interactions), you'll find yourself hard-pressed not to read this book in one sitting.
I know I've never managed not to. :)
Content warning: closed door relations, but all not closed minds. Some minor language. Some violence.
This is the first book in a new series she has started. The next book should be out later this year and I can hardly wait!
