    "This is a heart touching story, it's crude, a bit harsh and has much reality in it. It's full of feels and hard moments. The main character is unique and it was easy to feel simpathy for her and I could feel a conection i don't usually develop while reading. It's a great book but it's sad and a bit too painful to read, I still highly recommend it. "

    "Very interesting book about a girl recovering from mental illness in the 50s and her adventures with her doctors and people with her same illness. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the literal side of mental illnesses. "

    "this is just an ok book in my eyes. it is decently written and the story is told well. i just couldnt really get into the subject matter of the book and that is on me and the book. if someone enjoyed this sort of subject matter i am positive they would really enjoy this book. i just found it boring."

    "This book has a really classic vibe to it. The third person view makes the story intriguing and impossible to put down. "

    "I read this book in high school, and many years later picked it up again. The writing is very good; the story is well laid out and executed. All these years later, I would say that her portrayal of this mentally ill teenager is spot-on. I was saddened to see that the family reactions portrayed in this novel are also, in large part, valid as well. "

    "I found it to be a tough read that has kind of an old-fashioned take on the material. It may be worth reading depending on what you want out of it."
