Where do I even start with this book… When I was first reading the synopsis I honestly thought this was going to be TOO ‘young adultish” for me. DEFINITELY NOT. I laughed and cried out loud while reading this. I learned things about myself by reading this. And I realized that I have very little respect for a good nights sleep versus finishing an excellent book.

What did I learn? That it is truly okay to NOT be 100% okay all the time. You don’t have to have your life together every single day. Nobody is perfect and we all have off days. Sometimes a LOT of off days. I learned that my anxiety is not something I should ignore or try to hide. Also-I learned that people who are dealing with anxiety sometimes cannot find the right words to explain how they are feeling, I know I struggle with this, I just didn’t realize that’s what I was struggling with!

If you have someone in your life who deals with anxiety but they are struggling to explain it to you-just be supportive and understand that when they do find those words they will let you know.  I don’t get anxiety very often but when I do, it weighs me down so much. One day I will find the words for my anxiety and explain it to ya’ll!

This is a book about dealing with anxiety, or attempting to deal with it, but it is also a book about friendship. Having friends in your life who you know will support you no matter what and always be by your side-even if you sometimes act crazy, or always talk about yourself, or when you beat yourself down. Having friends who are there to bring you up when you can’t find the way is so important!

There is so much more I could write about this book but I don’t want to give any of it away because it is THAT good! Last thing I will say though is when I first started reading this I really didn’t want to finish. However, after the first few chapters I was hooked and couldn’t put it down! I finished it in like three days!

Let me know in the comments what you thought of it!
