    I actually envy all new readers to this book becau

    Because it was described as Breakfast Club meets Grimm’s Fairy Tales I had a certain idea of what I thought it was going to be but when I actually started reading it – WOW, my mental picture was WAY OFF! In some ways though it did have a faint reminiscent retelling of the aspect of Alice in Wonderland’s story when she learns to face her fears and overcome them. This book will not be what you expect especially after you read the synopsis, just be prepared to be blow away. It’s not very long so I highly recommend tuning out from the world for a bit because it’s so much better if you can just binge your way through it in one sitting. His characters with a fairy tale bent will endear themselves to you and you will find yourself wanting to know how their lives go beyond the pages. Stewart has created a world that feels so real you will become absorbed in this book and begin to forget the world around you as reality and fantasy begin to melt together just like what his characters are going through. There is a touching balance between humor and heartfelt in a novel that at its heart shows the simplicity in finding normalcy in an out of control world. I did appreciate the compassionate and beautiful way the author dealt with mental health issues. I actually envy all new readers to this book because you get to experience the magic of this for the first time. Enjoy the feelings of amazement and wonder that will follow you through this fantastical journey of finding friendship in the place you least expect it.

    Absolutely amazing, recommend to all

    This story follows a young teen named Milly who suffers from OCD and anxiety since the death of her mother. After fainting in gym class, her step-mother admits her to the psychiatric unit of the hospital in order to be treated for the above illnesses, as well as to figure out why Milly feels the need to count to 100 before doing certain things and ‘keeping the wolf away’. I very much enjoyed this story. The writing style flowed well and I found myself reading into the night to find out what’s happening, to find out the truth. The characters were certainly intriguing and learning more about each character as the story went along and what their ‘wolf’ means to them was interesting, it really showed that each person is different and processes things differently to others. It also showed that by opening up, you can receive help or at least open up the opportunity for help. The reason for this not being a perfect 5/5 story though was because there were certain scenes where I was made to feel uncomfortable but that was due to a personal factor, not because the book itself was wrong or bad. As I said before, everyone is different and will react in different ways. Another thing about it was that the cover was a little misleading, the summary too. It felt like it was going to be more of a horror story or at least darker than it actually was, but I wasn’t too upset by it. Overall this book was interesting and it shone light on a series of mental illnesses and even coping methods for said illnesses I’d recommend this to everyone. Though this book gives off the feeling that it’s certainly a hit or miss type of book. Still, give it a try!
