Booklist -- Mental health and wellness lie at the core of this novel in verse that follows high school senior Chiara as she lives an ideal life ... Through verse, Chhabra weaves a complex story of the fears and stigma associated with mental health and mental illness, and though readers should be prepared to encounter trauma and violent thoughts, it is a privilege to watch Chiara grow and take control of her life -- .NetGalley -- I am pleasantly surprised with this book. Most people who have thoughts really don't say anything and it turns into something else. This book of poetry is like a life story that she is wanting to write about and warn people about this form of mental illness. She is so brave and a true hero in my eyes, writing this book. I love it because she is so trying to help people in her own way, which is through poetry, and everyone can understand her. Love it, great book. I think everyone should read this excellent book -- .NetGalley -- This book is well written, and the characters are described well. I absolutely enjoyed this author's writing style. This is a fast-paced poetry book. It keeps your attention from the first page. Would I recommend reading, this book to anyone and everyone, yes, I would highly recommend it. This has great mental health representation. The family relationship in this book is great and the friendships are phenomenal. If you love poetry books written in verse, this is the book for you.
