Late Edelweiss Review! Oops

First I need to apologize to both Edelweiss and Sourcebook Fire for this late review. Life has been a bit hectic. I will strive to do better in the future.

A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

A Danger to Herself and Others

by

Alyssa B. Sheinmel (Goodreads Author)
Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars in this gripping new novel from New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Sheinmel.

Four walls. One window. No way to escape.

Hannah knows there’s been a mistake, She doesn’t need to be institutionalized. What happened to her roommate at that summer program was an accident. As soon as the doctor and judge figure out that she isn’t a danger to herself or others, she can go home to start her senior year. Those college applications aren’t going to write themselves. Until then, she’s determined to win over the staff and earn some privileges so she doesn’t lose her mind to boredom.

Then Lucy arrives. Lucy has her own baggage, and she’s the perfect project to keep Hannah’s focus off all she is missing at home. But Lucy may be the one person who can get Hannah to confront the secrets she’s avoiding-and the dangerous games that landed her in confinement in the first place.

 

REVIEW

I would like to thank Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4.5-49. stars.

This book was amazing! I am obviously feeling stingy this year as really this should be a 5 star but for some reason, I can’t click that last star.

I really loved this story. Hannah was, for the most part, a very relatable character. She had me guessing from the beginning what was happening and eventually what was wrong with her.

I felt so bad for Hannah. Her parents are obviously not good parents. Probably a lot of people would see them as good parents because they took care of her financially but obviously, they lacked in a lot of other areas. 😦

I wasn’t keen on the doctor at first. ‘Lightfoot’. She seemed uninterested and not caring. But she grew on me.
