Three point five rounded up four but I still have my deep concerns about this book because this is not what I expected stars I know this writer is genius I know what she has dome to me when I was reading “I let you go” I talked gibberish for one week at least and lost my face expressions looked like a botox addict after her big twist punched me several times so this is not the surprising smartly written book I desired and wished to read I confessed as soon as I read this first half of the book I got so emotional and used all napkins toilet papers to clear the traces of my ugly cries I

author faced through the same process in her real life with her husband I was flabbergasted for a long time My heart hurt for them My soul cried both for her and the characters she created based on her real life The opening at the court room and their painful visits to the intensive care for their two year old child were heart ripping hard to digest parts of the book This was different kind of

stars to this book But I hit my hand actually I bite my fingers too to stop myself and asked me what the hell I'm doing I know this is not the book I waited for but if it’s best way for the author to share her feeling by ripping a wounded piece from her heart and pouring her insecurities without giving a second thought are the bravest things that not much people can manageSo for her tough move to write about something hurting than Achilles Tendon Pain and the amazing first half of the book I gave my four stars shut my mouth My emotional side overshadowed my intellectual brain and I know this
