    1. So far it’s the only book I’ve read by her, but I was very impressed by how well she wove together two very different ideas–hypnotism and women’s suffrage. I’m definitely putting the rest of her books in my TBR list!

    1. Hi, Kourtni! Yes! This book is amazing – definitely deserving of a re-read! I didn’t realize how many sociopaths I’ve encountered throughout my life until I read this book – VERY eye-opening! I hope you enjoy it too! 😀

    1. I picked up Cracked Up to Be because it was free for a while on Scribd and absolutely LOVED it. It’s such a raw and realistic look at a high school girl’s struggle with guilt and mental illness. I definitely highly recommend it!
