Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall
Life is anything but rosy for Norah Dean. Louise Gornall paints a portrait of a teen suffering with a mental illness which is both heart-wrenching and acerbic.
Full disclosure. In this book:
Life goes on. Illness goes on. Coping goes on. The reality is that Norah Dean's life is a struggle. Each moment of each day she bravely fights to live an authentic life as a person with agoraphobia and OCD. Readers will empathize with her and cheer for her as she constantly confronts hundreds of tiny battles.
With regards to the ending, you'll get no spoilers from me. Starting with Chapter 35, Gornall weaves together all details (which initially appear to be extraneous) to create a climax that left me breathless, frantically reading to find out what would happen.
What a story. What a life. What a book.
