Need a good read for a bad day? Here's a Booktube Video all about it!!
Ohhh, I could not wish for a more perfect book.
If someone asks you how you are, you are meant to say FINE. You are not meant to say that you cried yourself to sleep last night because you hadn't spoken to another person for two consecutive days. FINE is what you say.
These days, loneliness is the new cancer – a shameful, embarrassing thing, brought upon yourself in some obscure way.But all that changes when she meets Raymond, an IT guy at the office.
I have been waiting for death all my life. I do not mean that I actively wish to die, just that I do not really want to be alive.Whew. After reading this one - I feel like I need to sleep for a week!
LOL could go and take a running jump. I wasn’t made for illiteracy; it simply didn’t come naturally.I adored Raymond's gentle prying and Eleanor's slow acceptance of other people.
In the end, what matters is this: I survived.
There are scars on my heart, just as thick, as disfiguring as those on my face. I know they're there. I hope some undamaged tissue remains, a patch through with love can come in and flow out. I hope.
