I loved the prose of this book even though everyone sucks in it it made me attached to the characters.

  • great depiction of mental illness 
i found that once we got a glimpse into her thoughts it all made sense. the way her brain works and her thought process really made sense to me as i’ve struggled deeply with mental illness. (never to this extent ofc)
ottessa’s writing really lures you in and this character is not that lovable but you can’t help but root for her in this journey of sleep.
