I absolutely loved this book. I wanted to read it when the movie first came out but honestly I’m glad I didn’t. I’m at a transformative part of my life right now and this book meant so much more to me now then it would have when I was 16. I definitely recommend this book to everyone, especially those who are working to find balance in their lives. Even if you saw the l vie, which in my opinion wasn’t great, the book is SO much better.
