This book is a deep look at the pain that death and suicide wreaks as well as the havoc on love ones. It also deals with the systemic impact of loss and how this influences each of the family members but especially the protagonist sixteen year old Ronnie.
As someone who has lost a sister (not to suicide but to cancer) I read this book with open eyes knowing how I felt when my sister died wondering if the author could capture those feelings. I have to tell you this author made me feel all of those emotions again as we follow Ronnie through her journey of grief and more. A poignant story of love, life, and loss of a sister, this book is the journey of someone who is hurting wounded and needing help but can’t ask for it. I enjoyed this carefully crafted story and its intricate layers from Leanne Beattie and look forward to anything else she’d care to write in the future.
This book is a must read for teens and adults coming to grips with loss.
