First thoughts after finishing this book: Yes, this was the way it was supposed to turn out!!
I really liked Marissa and was so happy that she finally learned to stand on her own two feet!! This was a great book that centers around Marissa and her insecurities. It isn't until her best friend Julia suffers a traumatic head injury that she realizes she's lived her life for Julia and not for herself. I can't imagine how hard it would be to have someone close to you change their personality over night due to something totally out of their control. One day Julia seems herself and then the next she's wearing clothes that look like they might have came from a thrift store. Marissa has to learn how to manage her life without Julia dictating her every move. She also learns to feel good about herself and embrace that lovely woman inside.
Recommend? Yes, this is a good book about life changing events and decisions, how far would you push the boundaries of your friendship, second chances, body image, and eventually believing in yourself.
Would I change anything? The ending...it was just a tad too abrupt for me. Other than that I was totally engaged in the story and felt that Marissa and I would've been great friends!!
