What a heart wrenching, throw everything you have to do today out the window and read this book right now, type of book. It will rip your heart to shreds and then try to piece it back together. I am not even sure I can accurately portray my feelings in words. Kathleen managed to pull feelings out of me I didn't know I had. This book connected with me on an atomic level, and even though Charlie and I lead very different lives and have very different problems, she represented my friend, my enemy, my family, my anxiety and insecurities, me.
