“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”
TRIGGER WARNING FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE (Mentions & Graphic Descriptions), RAPE (Attempted, Actual with Graphic Descriptions) and HEAVY EMOTIONAL STRESS.
What I feel right now:
1. This is one of the best CoHo books.
2. It was an emotional roller coaster ride.
3. This is one of the emotionally heaviest stories I’ve ever read.
4. At points, I have to stop reading because of the weight of the scenarios.
5. CoHo showed accurately the feeling of being abused or in being in a family with an abuser.
6. I am enlightened of how an abuse victim might feel and think and how they may make their decisions.
7. The way the story was written, including the letters to Ellen, made a good feel and a mysterious touch as well.
8. I hate love triangles. By the way.
9. Thank you for giving Allysa to Lily.
10.Thank you for the happy ending.
