Book evaluation #4
This book had a tone of despair throughout the majority of the story. This quote about Cherie's drug addiction proves her extreme issues with her life.“Even when I took the drugs I realized that this just wasn't fun anymore. The drugs had become a part of my routine. Something to wake me up. Something to help me sleep. Something to calm my nerves. There was a time when I was able to wake up, go to sleep, and have fun without a pill or a line to help me function. These days it felt like I might have a nervous breakdown if I didn't have them.” This was important to her story because it described just how serious her problem was. Another quote that showed the despair was this one."Sometimes I felt that there were too many painful things in this world, and I thought about them all, my heart might break in two." The story showed she felt no hope for herself but life turned around.
