The way the book is written, from Erica’s point of view, makes you feel that you are really there, existing in her head space. You feel what Erica feels and experience the OCD, even if you as the reader never have yourself. Very intriguing and insightful.
Erica, with help from a support group and her best friend Kara, navigates through life where everything is more difficult for her. She doesn’t even know if she can stay afloat, let alone find someone to love her. Then, within this context, we find out Erica is more than just a person with OCD, she is a person longing to be loved for who she is, which is exactly what Blaine does. I liked how the author did world-building of “Erica’s world” before meeting the love interest.
Once again, Kayla Krantz has outdone herself. Her other books are great, but this novella is one of a kind and courageous.
The reader is exposed to Erica’s world of ups and downs in an intimate way; the book is written as though you are privy to her every thought. At times it is painful to realize how debilitating the disorder can be, as you watch Erica wrestle with numerous inner conflicts over even minor choices. During our short glimpse into her life, Erica has been fired, needs to secure a new job, struggles with friendship, and a new love interest. The author opens a window into the lives of people suffering from OCD. You can’t help but come away with a much better understanding of how alone someone feels as they battle their compulsions, and seeks what helps.
In the first person present tense, the author successfully places the reader inside Erica's thoughts. We feel her social anxiety and occasional missteps in how she handles certain situations.
The reader feels every intense emotion Erica projects and how she's struggles with therapy such as art classes and support group. Even with her neuroses, she finds the inner strength to help someone else in need.
I love Kara. Everyone needs a Kara. She's almost perfect, but the author humanizes her. Most of the time she understands Erica's issues, but sometimes she doesn't, which is only human.
Loved the book. Highly recommended!

After reading a couple of dark thrillers, this lovely novella was exactly what I needed to bring the sunshine back. It's a Christmas story that can be read any time - especially when you need cheering up!
