This book was absolutely amazing. It had a touch of Charlotte Perkin Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" to it, and so made it interesting. But part of the reason I like it so much is that it made me realize that once, I was a shadow of this girl. I did not stalk my guy, but I was addicted to him. When I was not with him, I had this urge to be with him, or to close my eyes and 'feel' his arms wrapped around me. In truth, I thought it was the purest of loves. And then he broke it off, and didn't bother to tell me why, like Orpheus with Anooshka. I knew my guy was a playboy, but I thought he might have changed for me. Who was I to think this? I hoped. Mad in love, madly in love. Now I understand why people say that. It was more than a year ago, but like Anooshka, I still occasionally think about him, missing him, but certainly less than I did before. When I think about him, all I feel for him is a slight annoyance, because I know I wasted my time with him. For a while, I gave up love, and chose music, reading, and schoolwork instead; but now I see that it's okay to trust. I think I can give another guy a chance to be real with me. I just hope that this time, it will turn out better. Anooshka's story pretty much summarized my path with the one I fell for, and thus made it difficult for me to read, and to see my mistakes over again. But things change. I pray that my life, and any girl or boy in Anooshka's position's life, will be better, more whole. Let it, at long last, be real.
