Not what I was expecting, it was much much better

Holy shit!! I did not see this story coming, it reeled me in & didn’t let me go until the book was finished. I was sick with anxiety as CJ’s story unfolded & realised young people are experiencing teenage years I can’t related to. It was eye opening to say the least. I’m so impressed with the authors work, her knowledge of difficult topics and willingness to address tough things head on, like we have to in life. While this book might be fiction it read like real life. Outside of read me, I’m at a loss to describe this book.

Celeste is the best

I started reading this book & it didn’t grip me. When I swapped to audiobook it came alive. Much of Celeste’s impact is in her delivery, her tone. I didn’t know much about her outside of her challenge accepted series & bushfire relief. Her book gave me insight into why she is so unapologetically herself. She isn’t everyone’s cup & tea & she’s perfectly ok with that. We need more of that in the world.

The first half is immature romanticising a soul mate connection, riddled with unhealthy behaviours. It has me questioning if it was written by a teenager or an adult. Then the story took a turn as we opened up Rosies story and the characters seem to deepen as the writing matured. It’s the reason I didn’t put this one aside as not my type of book. If your after an easy read with a happy ending give it a go. A mature well rationed story that will have you in the edge of your seat... properly best to keep looking.

Thought provoking

I found this book particularly helpful in highlighting some of the ways I hold myself back. I gained some insights into different ways of being.
Naturally there are some who won’t find this book useful.

What a story!

A unique looking into a world I never knew excited. The conviction of these women, their strength, compassion & humility is inspiring. A must read/listen.
To Maryam & Marziyeh thank you for sharing your story with the world.
