Review: Ask me how I got here- Christine Heppermann
Addie has always known what she was running toward. In cross-country, in life, in love. Until she and her boyfriend—her sensitive, good-guy boyfriend—are careless one night and she ends up pregnant. Addie makes the difficult choice to have an abortion. And after that—even though she knows it was the right decision for her—nothing is the same anymore. She doesn’t want anyone besides her parents and her boyfriend to know what happened; she doesn’t want to run cross-country; she can’t bring herself to be excited about anything. Until she reconnects with Juliana, a former teammate who’s going through her own dark places.
I actually read this book a long while back but totally forgot to write and post the review!
This book was written in like... poem style?
I dont know what to call it
but when you finish this book it is like plunging in a pool on a summer day
just, this freshness that kinda stings but you still enjoy and would do it again?
It is a quick read because of the way it is written but boy does it pack a punch. Got to give huge props to Heppermann because it just .. its a masterpiece.
This is a book that needs to be read by all, it is a coming of age book that should be a required read, people could really learn from it
