Book Description: Amy has a normal life. That is, if you were to go by a definition of ‘no immediate obvious indicators of peculiarity’, and you didn’t know her very well. She has good friends, a good job, a nice enough home. This normality, however, is precariously plastered on top of a different life. A life that is Amy’s real life. The only one her brain will let her lead.

Rating: 4 Stars

Review: Let me preface that the author sent me a free copy of this book, and I am so glad she did. This is a book that I would have never found without her reaching out.

This book is all about Amy, who has a job, some great friends that she meets from her work. She wants a relationship and everything else that appears to be “normal”. What you get is a story about a girl struggling with OCD and Depression. Riva gives a great own voices story about how Amy struggles with practically everything,

Riva does an excellent job getting Amy’s voice to shine. You literally feel everything that Amy goes through on a daily basis, whether is riding public transportation, working in an open workspace or have to go on extended business trip to Australia.

The two bright lights in this story beside Amy are Ed and Nathan who are her co-workers. Both of these characters seem to have a deep understanding of Amy and make wonderful travel companions and help her in some of her darkest moments.

This was a wonderful story, that will make you think that there just might be light at the end of this tunnel.

You really can say I am an obsessed reader as I read 200-300 books per year. I love Literary Fiction, Memoirs (I don't really care what kind), Mysteries and Thrillers. Once in awhile I will thrown in some YA and Romance. When I am not reading, I am a Sales Engineer for a software company, and I take care of my three cats with my husband. I love music, which my college degree is in. Looking forward to share my thoughts on all things reading.
