Gritty and Raw
What makes this story really interesting is how relatable it is even if you've never experienced the exact things the narrator does. It's the everyday observations that she makes that make it so intriguing to read. The narrator voices the thoughts people have on ordinary, minor occurrences and interactions, ones that aren't voiced aloud often enough. Doctors suck. Medications suck. Casual dating sucks and people end up being remembered as "the ___ guy". The cynicism is honest and, quite frankly, refreshing. And because it is such a dark, honest story, that makes the small moments of happiness she has or the little joys she finds in things even more rewarding. A quick, very enjoyable read.
