Eleanor

Eleanor goes head on with the topic of depression with no sight of hitting the breaks. The book describes how the people around us can really affect our lives and how they don’t know what they are doing to you. Some of the trauma that is taken isn’t necessary physically noticeable, like your hair/ skin doesn’t turn a different color. (sidenote: that would be really cool if people’s skin started to slowly change in color to maybe a red when they are experience warning signs of mental health problems). Sometimes the realization that something horrible is happening doesn’t happen until it is too late.

The Roanoke Girls

“You know your family’s f*ed up, right?” he asked. “Like, seriously screwed.”
This novel became difficult to read since the main focus and theme of the novel is about sexual abuse. I cringed and curled up at some parts because of how disturbing it was. I this was the point of the novel, to open people’s eyes to the things that go on in this world then mission accomplished. If you get easily triggered then I do not recommend this book. Besides sexual abuse, there are other trigger warnings of self-inflicted death and murders of a child and a woman, along with alcohol abuse., “I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”
