This Book Will Not Disappoint!
This was my first Colleen Hoover read and I was blown away! I listened to it and literally did not want to stop to do life because I wanted to know what was going to happen to these magical characters I fell in love with! And the narrator was PERFECT! Merit has an unusual family life. She lives in an old church with her father and step-mother, as well as her mother who lives in the basement and will not come out. Other characters include Merit's twin sister, her older brother, a younger brother, an uncle by marriage who comes along unexpectedly, and Merit's love interest, whom she believes to be her twin's boyfriend. Merit finds herself in the throes of depression and the story comes to a head when she writes a heartfelt letter after which she attempts to remove herself from her reality. Each character is so deliciously developed that you will feel that they are your personal friends. The reader will quickly become invested in the story which has a superb ending. I cannot wait to read more by Colleen Hoover, and luckily I discovered there is quite a collection to choose from!

Was this a lesson for a teenager with Depression
Wow - I love love love Colleen Hoover books but this one was disappointing. So disappointing this is the first ever review I've written. Ok so if you have a child that likes to read and has a negative attitude about life and other people this is the book for them. The message is good but the delivery from a homeless teenage and a reckless 20 year old is far from believable. The intelligence and maturity of these characters are unrealistic. I feel like I spent 9 hours listening to an after school special on the rights and wrongs of judging without getting the whole story. I feel like I was schooled.

Wow what a family!’
This isn’t your typical CoHo book but what I loved about it was that ALL the characters were flawed and everyone was hiding their own little secret. The book also dealt with many controversial topics like depression and I think Colleen Hoover did well in incorporating this into the story. If you are after a romance novel then look elsewhere because it’s low on romance and high on family dynamics and relationships.
