A nicely written book about a rather unpleasant issue. I liked that Alex's friends continued to reiterate the fact that she always had 'options'- a good message. As a piano player, I was also pleased with all of the classical music references. I am not a big fan of Beethoven's Ninth however I did find myself humming 'Ode to Joy' almost every time I opened the book! The only thing I would have liked to see done differently was Alex's relationship with Martin. I would've liked to see them only just get together at the end rather than starting a full-on thing halfway through the book. Overall though, a good read.
