Review Update !
Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book has stunned me in so many ways. What I wasn’t prepared for was knowing how much I could possibly be loving this book. I literally lived the pages, not read them. I know how it feels to always feel not good enough, always be criticized. Give this book to introverts and they’ll fall for it instantly.
It’s so well and beautifully written, it is more than just another YA novel. This book is meant to open people’s eyes as to what an introvert is and what it actually means – being one is not a problem, or an issue or an illness. It is just the way someone is born. We aren’t the ones who choose the way we are born, all we can do is learn to accept the way we or the others are.
Not Enough is the story of a young girl named Neve, who had to bear her mothers criticism, awful comments or powerful words for all of her life. She’s always made her feel like she wasn’t good enough no matter what she did or achieved. For her mum, all that really mattered was for her to go out, spend time around people,building up a life for her – a life that didn’t make Neve happy.
Good thing though, she had Blake, her lifetime best friend who stood by her everytime. Helped her pick up the broken pieces of her heart, soul and dreams. What Blake does not know is that Neve wanted to take her life once. Afraid that if she would tell him all of her darkest fears and thoughts that are going on he’ll leave, she decides to keep it all a secret until time felt right.
If you want to know how their story will end, you MUST READ the book. But prepare yourself cause you’ll need some tissues along the way.
