This is the first book in a long time that I want to put in the hands of my female friends. Rupi's writing is raw, honest, brutal and powerful. She says things that I have felt or thought & lays them out of the page. I devoured this in one sitting. The book is a journey that takes you through the stages of a relationship. She also writes of her relationship with her father. There were several times I cried while reading this. When you find something that rings true to your being you want to share it with the world.— Heather G.
