Harmony Kent did a wonderful job of weaving her tale. I was pulled in from the very beginning and couldn’t let go until the story was finished. I’m guessing she had firsthand experience through a friend. I hope her friend has fully recovered. I’m guessing again, but I imagine many never recover and too many end up dead. I actually felt like Harmony was telling her own story—the mark of a good writer. A great five star read. Well done Harmony Kent.
I found this book to be quite realistic as to how a person who has found themselves in Kate's situation might feel and react. The emotions and inner voice are raw and real. I couldn't help but feel for Kate, and I loved Mel's persistence and the strategies she used to get Kate to open up.
This book is not for everyone, though it's one of those books that I want to recommend to the whole world! That I'm aware of, it's not a true story, but there are SO many children who experience these issues. As a society, we are so quick to blame the child for misbehavior or for behaviors that do not fit into the norm. We don't want to dig too deep for fear that we will become dragged into a deeper issue, but these children need someone who cares enough to dig deep enough. Teachers, psychologists, and nurses are usually the ones who try, but sometimes the system works in favor of the adults. I hope this book sheds some light on the need for adults to reach out to children and teens who are struggling so that kids can get the help they need with their first cry for help.
The topic is a bit dark, but Harmony Kent handles it well, digging into the complex psyche those coming of age deal with. You might adore this book or it might disturb you a bit, but I promise you that you won't be able to walk away from this story without being impacted by 17-year-old Kate's story.
Even though it is a bit dark, Kent also manages to weave in a bit of humor to lighten things up. If you love stories with strong first-person narrators and authors who aren't afraid to tackle tough topics, you'll really enjoy this book and author Harmony Kent.
I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading, but since I had to go back to work, I had no choice. However, I may have been late a few times as I dragged myself away kicking and screaming. Great job, Harmony Kent.
