    I m rather disappointed in this book To be clear, it has solidified my love for Deb Caletti s writing I requested a copy of this book thank you Netgalley for granting me a copy because I was am completely obsessed with A Heart in a Body in the World, and to be honest, the premise of the book was irrelevant to my interest However, I definitely did not expect the story to go the way that it did I act

    If this book makes you uncomfortable, that s because it s supposed to This is definitely not the thriller that the description makes it out to be, but it is a powerful narrative of a young woman struggling to find her voice in a world defined by men s opinions of her and her body It makes you reconsider society s standards of beauty and the rape culture altogether Highly recommend.
