Overview

Relationships - any kind of relationships - are integral to human existence. Our hearts soar with delight at the hint of first love and lay heavy and broken when the world crashes down. We love, sometimes unrequitedly so, hate when there's nothing else left, and make stupid decisions because love is, after all, deaf, dumb, and blind.

In this collection of personal essays, author K.J. Pierce reflects on the nature of love, relationships, and emotional attachments, examining not only what others have come to teach her, but her own motivations as well. Sometimes funny, sometimes raw, but always honest, she delves into her pursuit of answers with abandon, relishing those who who've played an integral part in her life, learning from those who merely pass through, and ultimately realizing that sometimes there are only more questions.

    Wow

    I really liked this book. Growing up is a hard and scary thing to do and the author pulls no punches on her own insecurities. Though we have totally different backgrounds, for one I am male, I could identify with her thoughts and feelings. Who hasn't felt lost and alone in this messed up world?
    It is a quick read, but one I will be revisiting to catch the things I missed the first time around.
