"In this extraordinary first novel, Patricia McCormick gives us a painful glimpse into adolescent mental illness...[that] is sensitive and wise. (AudioFile)
"[Clea] Lewis imbues her reading with the cynicism and pain of the book's troubled 15-year-old protagonist, Callie." (Publishers Weekly)
"Actress Clea Lewis does an excellent job of portraying the different characters with her voice inflections. Listeners are drawn into the girls' despair." (School Library Journal)
I would recommend this book to a friend suited to the theme and topic of the book. The audio quality was quite good, and the story was good too.
I liked that it followed all roots of the main character's (Callie) issues. We saw her get put in an unideal situation and she tried (after a while) to make the best of it.
This book made me neither extremely laugh or cry, it did get my mind thinking. I did have a tear and a giggle here and there.
Enjoy the book!
I liked the book
Good..although I've never really had a problem with narrators. Not sure I'm just not picky or havent heard a bad one.
Hey now! I dont want to give it away.
"My new favourite book!!"
If anyone if going through a hard time—whether it's self injury, eating disorders, addiction, anything really—I believe this story should be the first step of the road to recovery. The story is so realistic to me, and I feel that anyone can mirror it to find success. Good luck!
I love this book... it has such a strong meaning behind it... it's such a good book...
This audio book was a great listen. It kept my mind occupied from beginning to end. Everyone should take the time to listen to this.
