Remember to be grateful, Natalie thinks, for every single day.
There were 5 (four) POVs total with one surprise POV (that I won’t reveal). Catherine’s POV was in first person, while Natalie’s, Jake’s and Frank’s were in second. The addition of using second person made this book extra special and added a more sinister twist. The POVs would move to the next person when they found out something, which caused me anguish and forced me to continue to read to find out what happened. And I loved every minute of that.
I honestly don’t even know what I can tell you guys about this book because I don’t want to spoil anything. Honestly, just go in completely blind. Don’t even read the synopsis. But, please make sure your mental health is in a good spot. Natalie is very sick and talks in depth of her illness, which includes self harm and disordered eating. And also be prepared for some gruesome descriptions. I can handle a lot but with these descriptions, it made me feel kind of sick.
I think I will end the review on that note. I don’t want to spoil anything at all and if I continue to talk about it, I will spoil it. All I know is that I love this book and it has made its way into my top 10 of 2018 without a shred of doubt. I will be on the lookout for more work by this author. Her writing is absolutely breathtaking and oh so haunting. You will not be disappointed when you read this book.
The only people who think there is a time limit for grief have never lost a piece of their heart.
