Changing Ways by Julia Tannenbaum (Book Review #822)


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.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

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.
