review 1: I was surprised at how much I loved this story! I'm at a point in my life where I'm learning so much more about myself so, this book is very timely. I'm not sure if this was the authors' intention, but I'm believing the main character deals with mental illness (as do I). Losing one's identity is unfortunate.

Coralville briefly appears!
