About this deal

And all of these issues are very near and dear to my heart but the pace of my life and the pace that I was working was just very unsustainable. Marianne struggles with validation from her family and romantic relationships which have an impact on the way she views herself. So there can kind of be this fine line between, you know, cozy hibernating, turning inward, and completely disengaging from the world. The brutality of teenagers towards each other is very well portrayed and reminded me of the Casual Vacancy by Rowling.
