I absolutely loved this book, it was so creative and interestingly written. There is journal entries and third person POV mixed in throughout the story. Usually, third person POV seems so stiff and hard to connect with the characters — but Maria Ann Green has a talent for third person POV. It had voice and it was easy to connect to Meagan and her journey.

Meagan struggles with doubt and depression, and finds her only source for relief through cutting. It was interesting to get into the mind of a character that thought this was a good idea — even though she kinda already knew it wasn't. The journey from deciding to cut, to cutting, to deciding not to cut was a painful one for Meagan, and the reader. She's a nice girl, who has flaws and brilliance both. I wouldn't say she made a mistake, this book isn't about judging the habit, but about trying to break free of it for Meagan.

Poor Meagan, when she finally does, her high school experience continues to have ups and downs. This is one of those interesting books that flows from MG, when Meagan is in middle school, to NA — when she is in college. Due to this, a lot of moments and sometime a whole year will be skimmed over. I kinda wish I could have known more about what happened then, but since the book is spanning such a large period of time I understand why the author wouldn't stop for these moments if nothing important to her journey was really happening. I kinda would've liked to see more of her relationships as well, because it's not until the last one that we really get to see what it's like for Meagan. Otherwise, it is in the journal entries that they are skimmed over. Again, though, since this isn't a romance book I understand that aspect.

Overall, I give this book my seal of approval.

It will break your heart. It will give you hope. You will love it.

I don't like cutting scenes. But there are not many gory ones in the story. It's more about the emotional turmoil and healing.

This is a great read! The main character's journey and development is powerfully realistic; I even caught myself gasping out loud more than once. I love the struggle that Maria Ann Green presents for her character. Ms. Green writes beautifully and has a knack for breaking her readers' hearts before giving them hope.

This book wasn't at all what I expected. We meet and follow the main character through journal entries as she shares her struggles and triumphs. Megan deals with depression and cutting, while some of her other friends struggle with other forms of self-harm. The author places us firmly in this young girl's shoes and the results are heart-wrenching. But there is hope, and this novel ends on a redemptive note.

I am a big fan of dialogue and interaction with other characters, and this novel didn't have a ton of that due to the journal format. The journal entries would morph into more "live-action" scenes where Megan interacted with her friends or her group, but I would have loved to see more of that.

I'm also not a big poetry fan, and this book contained a lot of Megan's poetry. It was pretty and I admire anyone who thinks in verse and can sprinkle it throughout a book as is seen in IN THE REARVIEW. Sometimes the poetry hinted at other drama in Megan's life, and I wondered if those events actually took place or if she really just liked to write. If the poems were based on events happening in her life, I would have liked to read more about them because they sounded exciting, or at least dramatic.

I enjoyed this and it was a relatively quick read for me. Looking forward to more from this author.

The main character, 23-year old Meagan, is introduced to the reader through a series of diary entries and poems. She looks back on her life in her adolescent years, where it all began.

Meagan battles problems that no parent ever wishes their daughter to go through. She feels that they are much worse and not normal. To cope, Meagan begins a pattern of self inflicted harm as her depression threatens to drown her. She starts cutting.

That one cut turns into another, and another. Like an addict, Meagan feels the instant gratification, but then has conflicting thoughts: remorse and figuring out when to cut again.

While learning to quit cutting, Meagan faces life-altering obstacles and grows up in the process.

Debut author, Maria Ann Green's takes us on a young woman's journey on growing up and the consequences of life are spot on. Through the beautifully crafted poems and the unique diary-entry style of the novel, this book really puts the reader in the shoes of Meagan. As the reader, I could feel her pain. And at times, I understood and related to the situations that Meagan found her self in.

IN THE REARVIEW is a FANTASTIC read of pain, loss, and above all, hope!!!
