Sana @ artsy musings of a bibliophile - Wow, this is my first time hearing about this book and I am really glad I got to. College life vs a summer at home are two sides of the same coin and I’d love to read Ruth’s story.

Great review!

Tara - Yep, this is going on the TBR list immediately. I love books set in that 18-22 age group because it’s such an odd time in one’s life. I remember going back home after that first year of college and counting down the days until I could go back!

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - I don’t know when the last time I guessed wrong in a book was. Oh wait, Ready Player One threw me for several loops. But on that statement alone I’m interested!

Kristen - Adding this to my TBR list. I am endlessly fascinated by family dynamics. Throw in the mystery with Peter, the eating disorder and a hint of a romance? Um, please and thank you! 🙂

VeganYANerds - I recognised the cover from your Big Kids post right away and I’m really glad it lived up to such a lovely cover.

I agree that does sound like YA or NA/mature YA and I definitely want to read it. I need to know about Peter, I wonder if I’ll guess the same as you did (I’ll be sure to ask when I finally read this!)

Great review, hun!

elena - This sounds like an amazing book! I’m strangely fascinated by eating disorders so have Ruth be self-aware of it interests me. The relationship with her brother sounds really interesting and the prejudices thing sounds foreboding. Wonderful review, Estelle!

Annette - Really enjoyed your review. I like the romance isn’t “bigger than it ought to be.” You have me wondering about David, too. Gonna have to put this on “the list.” Thanks!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I really want to read this book. It sounds absolutely amazing story-wise, for one thing, and I’m interested to learn more about these characters. Eating disorder stories are always a bit tricky, but from what you’ve said, I feel like it’s handled in an intelligent, interesting manner.
