    Well, I read this story in one sitting. But, it definitely was not what I thought it would be. I knew something was off a few chapters in, and I knew mostly where it was going. I think that I didn't pay as much attention to the last line of the summary or I probably would have been expecting more of what this book was about.
    This is not to say that I disliked this book, it was just kinda like getting a sip of sweet tea when you were expecting diet coke.
    Holding on to Zoe is also hard to review because I can't really say very much without giving away spoilers, and I don't want to do that.
    The character development was good, and Jules really evoked my sympathy. I felt for her love for Zoe, her pain that her mom is pushing her away and refuses to believe that Zoe is there.
    My problems are more of were coming from more of a medical perspective. I wanted more answers as to *why* and *how.* But I can also see that this is a book for teens and not everyone cares (read probably everyone except me?) about those questions from the medical sense, instead of just focusing on the world that was set up, what the character was going through and feeling and her journey to finding herself in the mess of what her life had become.
    This story is short but has lots of emotional issues.
