Changing ways is the story about a 16-year-old girl called Grace Edwards. She is vulnerable, sensitive, and is not coping well with her life. From her diet to self-harming, she has suicidal thoughts, and as soon as things get a touch at school, it triggers the notion of her cutting herself.
It was soon found out that Grace is not well and so she is sent to a psych ward. Grace wants out and so tries to comply, but things do not get better for her, and when it does, Grace somehow falls back to her old ways.
I appreciated how the author wanted to bring about the conversation of how young adults are facing depression and self-harming in a story format. However, what I was mostly hoping for, was some kind of an ending that provided a clear message for Grace and everyone who was like Grace, and could be reading this book.
Having someone like parents, grandparents, friends, and family is always a vital need for people under such a mental state and Grace, too, had the support she needed to heal.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fiction and stories that discuss psychology matters.Tweet
