I didn’t love it or hate it.
Would I recommend it, yes…it may not be for me but it might be more to your liking.
Jenny grew on me eventually. At first, she was a cliché hung up on material possessions and keeping up appearances. But as her life started to spiral out of control, I began to feel sorry for her, I could see foresee what was happening around her and I wanted to give the poor girl the heads up.
Olivia seemed so unsure of herself, and it was brutal in places just how low her self-esteem was. I wanted to swoop in and take her away from there.
I feel like maybe the author wanted to leave the story the way she did, but I don’t know it fell flat for me, anti-climactic even. And that’s in no way disrespectful to the author not at all. I read her inspiration behind writing this book and it’s tragic. It made sense why it was left so open…and without what I felt was closure.
