This post has adlinks, however all thoughts are my own!
Ok so I know why it’s taken me so long to review this book. It’s not the fact that I don’t know what I think of it, rather it’s the fact of what it made me think of myself.
What I loved the most about the book was it’s raw honesty. The fact that Therese so openly wrote about the thrill and need of attention to boost her self esteem and how she (sadly) isolated herself from everything and everyone. This is her love letter to not only herself but to all girls around Sweden struggling to juggle perfection and expectations of always feeling well. Because let’s face it, sometimes (all of us) just don’t feel so good!
The book also consists of short facts about various mental health conditions and what defines them. Very educational for those who might not fully understand the cores of them. To me they were a reality check from facts I’ve tried to ignore for long but now had to face and acknowledge.
Right after this I was decked out for hours, enjoyed my breakfast thou!
Loved this quality time with my son and our books in Madeira a while back.
Is it the best book I’ve read on the topic?
Probably not. However it’s the most important one of this day of age as Therese reaches a lot of young people and her writing this will hopefully help at least one or two young people from feeling alone and understanding mental illness. I do recommend it and it comes in two cover versions, hard cover and pocket. Part two of this post will be published tomorrow, it’s a sum up of both the book and the products by Therese Lindgren. Make sure to read it, there’s a twist in the end of tomorrow’s post!
