Rating – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I absolutely loved this book from start to finish; it centres around Norah, who struggles with agoraphobia, anxiety and OCD, and focuses on the challenges that her illnesses bring, including leaving her house.
I absolutely loved Norah; her worries regarding her conversations with other people were something that I could seriously relate to. Her struggles were very realistic and well-portrayed, and my heart aches for her.
There is a little bit of romance, but this isn’t one of those books where the female lead meets a gorgeous guy and suddenly poof! what mental illness??
Norah still struggles at the end of the book, and I love that it wasn’t suddenly a miraculous recovery.
My only issue with this book is more to do with me than the story; I wasn’t expecting any self harm, and while it might not have been “major”, it could still potentially be triggering.
