I admired this book because as a reader I got to know Claire's feelings from the beginning. It had a big impression on me, because I started to think about the background of her story. We never imagine that our environment could have such an effect on our lives, feelings and thoughts. It made me think about myself, my family and friends; no-one should hate themselves as much as Claire does.
I have a lot of respect for her, because after a painful time she finds a way out of her crisis and starts to help other people. I recommend this book because when you read someone else's story, you think about how it compares to the lives we all live.
