This is a very emotionally taxing read. Looking at the Corin Thompson that readers meet in this book's opening pages; one is compelled to either shake her or hug her. She presents as a young woman fighting against severe mental demons in the effort to build some semblance of a life. She has a home, a business, and has even managed a friendship or two.
Corin wants to die.
