This is a great novel focusing on the life of a normal teenage girl attempting to protect and understand her bipolar brother. Smith does a great job setting up her novel, and I highly enjoyed it. It’s a very well written, true-to-life story, and Annabelle’s struggles are very poignant, especially her belief that she’s a terrible sister, which is heartbreaking.Was this review helpful?

Watching her deal with her own issues, as well as trying to keep her brother out of trouble was very interesting. Bullied by her ex, in love with her ex’s best friend, and trying to understand what her brother could have possibly done to get permanently kicked off the track team, voided any chance at a college scholarship, Annabelle feels like she’s between a rock and a hard place. I really loved watching this story unfold from Annabelle’s point of view. She doesn’t hold anything back, telling it as she sees it, and the raw emotions she feels adds to the validity and depth of the story. I really enjoyed it, and recommend this to all.
