I finished this book in two days. Not because it was particularly fantastic but not because it wasn't either. It was a simple yet enjoyable read. Very reminiscent of the film Girl Interrupted which is also based on a book about a suicidal yet otherwise "normal" woman and the patients she meets during her stay. I felt for the characters strife (and at times cringed over it) and I rooted for their success in overcoming it. A book that gets my emotional investment also tends to get my approval. I would recommend this book to someone looking for some inspiration from a story about a down-and-out heroine trying to find herself and her way in life.

This is an amazing book, I couldn't put it down, and it stays with you long after you've finished reading.
