    A perfect finale to a wonderful and genuine series

    I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review. Being Me is an emotional and heartfelt glimpse of the challenges Amanda must overcome on her path to emotional, mental, and physical wellness. Copeland did an amazing job of conveying the really tough issues surrounding addiction and recovery. In my opinion, she struck the right balance of providing enough detail to keep from sugar coating the issues while avoiding being too graphic and repelling her audience. I think it helps to build awareness of eating disorders and prevents those who are fighting these disorders from being stigmatized, and it demonstrates the importance of having a good support system in place to fight any mental or emotional disorder. It was easy to empathize with Amanda's character while she's on the path to recovery because the reasons behind her issues were explained quite well. The psychological and physiological reasons for eating disorders, addiction, and mental illness can be quite complex, but I thought Copeland made these easy to comprehend and relate to. I also found it interesting how some of the secondary characters who have been in the previous installments of the series reacted to Amanda's illness. I was able to predict how a couple of them would react, but some of them surprised me; a couple of the people who I thought would be more supportive ended up being barriers to Amanda's recovery, and a few unexpected allies popped up along the way. There were moments in the book where my heart broke for Amanda, I felt angry for her sake, and times when I felt a sense of triumph when Amanda overcame the numerous obstacles to her success. Being Me was an emotional rollercoaster ride for me, but it is a perfect finale to a wonderful and genuine series!
