  1. 2.5 stars – It was alright, an average book.

    An interesting character study in which you essentially follow the main character’s descent into mental instability due to heartbreak and depression following the after effects of poor choices.

    I found it rather insightful regarding why people may do “crazy things” after break-ups, as you see why the MC does the things she does and her reasoning (often irrational) for such.

    On the other hand, there is much bitterness and vitriol in the book which make
