Like I mentioned with 'Tweak' .. though these stories are not based on true stories, they still are so appealing to me as a reader. I find so much interest in mental disorders, addiction, disease. It's insane that someone could write the things this woman has been capable of. The lives in these books just seem so real. They're emotional, and driven. I like to read passages with purpose.. and this author really fulfills my desire as a reader.
