This was definitely a YA book, but it's one of those that adults would like as well. While I am a little squeamish with the subject as a whole, the book only implies the subject and looks back at the history. And, of course, the thoughts as Charlie contemplates doing it again.
This book really delved into the thoughts behind a recovering addict. The story is told in such a way that it's not boring. While seemingly sad, it is interesting and entertaining reading. I enjoyed this much better than Gillian Flynn's "Sharp Objects" which dealt with the same subject. There seemed to be more character development and I felt a closeness with Charlie who was always getting her heart broke.
Thanks Random House Children's and Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
