book review

This is such an important book to read. There were so many moments that made me so sad that I couldn’t help but cry my eyes out. Kim Turrisi’s writing is just so easy to digest, so easy to read that it makes you relate to the main character’s woes that much easier.

This is a book about grief. About life after someone you love leaves you by suicide. And in the acknowledgements section, she writes that her own sister committed suicide. This is why the book was just so raw and emotional and real. The pain is real. I actually cried reading that acknowledgment. For someone who has been depressed and suicidal myself, this book is easy to relate to. But reading from the grieving sister’s point of view is even more heartbreaking.

I loved this one and couldn’t put it down. A heart-breaking read that will have you grateful for all the love that you have in your life. I know I won’t be able to forget it.
