This book was written so well and it is incredibly accurate to what it's like to actually be in an abusive relationship. The way that the author wrote it, starting with the end and writing back to the beginning, helps readers look at the situation in a new light that makes the situation easier to understand for someone who has never experienced it. It's a very quick read, but a good one.

One of the most beautiful books I've ever read, I've had to think about how this one made me feel. It helped me see abusing relationships in a whole new light and I really loved how she wrote it in reverse chronological order, changing the perspective of the story and of the characters. Connor's story and how Amanda told it made me realize that nothing happens for no reason and people can become very, very different. And Ann let me see that sometimes we feel we don't have choices and that it wasn't her fault she ended up in the situation she did. As shown in the very last paragraph of the book, one little thing, one tiny moment, can change everything.

I finished this book pretty quickly, it was okay. Not the best thing I've ever read though...
