Many feels for an empath. Life is tough but it's real, and so is Zoe's story.

Writing this review has taking me a while; not because I think my review is important, but because this book took me through a lot of difficult emotions. I had to stop and let out a few tears at less twice. I don't have an addiction myself, but I've lived my entire life watching someone else's and being a part of their story.
When the Sylvie makes what I consider the most terrible choice, I closed the book and thought, how can I continue? I felt her shame, sorrow and despair. It took me a long time to pick it back up, because I didn't see it ending well... for anyone.
Zoe's writing is so raw, honest, and real. When I finished reading, I sat and thought about what it must be like to feel so such grief and to wallow in it. I often spend time reflecting; not about anything good or bad, but just on what is. I admire Zoe's strength and her ability to tell something so difficult and so real.
