Kelly (Radiant Shadows) - That cover is really freaking me out! I’m intrigued by almost anything set in a psychiatric facility, so I think I would really enjoy this one. I hadn’t heard of Counting Backwards until I read this review, but it’s definitely caught my interest; great review!

Tara - I am right there with you – I’m extremely fascinated by mental illness/psychological books and this one sounds right up my alley. Off to add it to my TBR now!

Magan - Hi Randi! You’re so welcome! I really enjoyed reading Counting Backwards. If you’re a fan of contemporary YA, then this will be right up your alley. She’s a broken character, but it’s a wonderful journey seeing how she gets pieced back together.

Magan - Alexa, you took the word right out of my mouth. I was trying to tweet about this book review and I was actually going to say “multi-faceted character” but … then I thought that might take up too many characters. Haha! READ IT!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I don’t know why, but I really feel like I would like this book. It sounds so good and meaty in terms of story; and also, Taylor sounds like a great, multi-faceted character, which I LOVE.

Randi M - Great review! This is one is on my list, but I’ve read very few reviews for it. I’m also a fan of psych ward settings. 🙂 And I love YA contemporary! Thanks for sharing.
