When traditional therapy fails, the Korsakoff Clinic may be Shiv’s last option for stopping her destructive behavior and help her deal with the death of her brother. The therapy is intense, but Shiv knows that something has to change. New relationships both help and complicate the process, and Shiv is no longer sure what is the truth and what she imagined. This novel alternates between flashbacks and current therapy.
This novel is an emotional ride. The emotions are real and you can’t help but feel for Shiv and the others trying to move past such horrible tragedies. The novel is well written and the characters believable. Rated for 7-12, but some may not know the Salinger references without a little explanation.
I had one, but I did thought I did this review already so I deleted it. Sorry!
