I really enjoyed this book and the light it shed on someone struggling with addiction. Annie’s heartbreaking story definitely allowed me to see things from a new perspective. An emotional read that had me reaching for the tissues - which is rare!
Couldn’t give 5 stars because Lexie’s character irritated me quite a bit and that took away from the story. It didn’t make sense for someone so “strong and independent” to be so whiny and weak. I also had to look up where the author was from when I was finished reading because a lot of words and phrases (“cot” instead of crib, etc) made the book sound like it was set quite far from Montgomery, Alabama. I had to keep reminding myself this was taking place in the US.
