Part of the Summary (All you need to know):

An affecting and hope-filled posthumous collection of essays and stories from the talented young Yale graduate whose title essay captured the world’s attention in 2012 and turned her into an icon for her generation. Marina Keegan’s star was on the rise when she graduated magna cum laude from Yale in May 2012. She had a play that was to be produced at the New York International Fringe Festival and a job waiting for her at the New Yorker.

I want to give the rating first so you can read it now, unless you really want to read my review. The non-fiction section of this book is 5 out of 5; the fiction is 2 out of 5 so this averages to 3.5 out of 5 cups of tea. It’s amazing and even though I disliked the stories I still gave a high rating so this should say how much I enjoyed the book in general. Do not read the full summary. Read from the Opposite of Loneliness essay to the end of the book. Then decide if you loved the book or not. Finally, go and read the forewords and the acknowledgements. Bonus: I made a playlist for it. You’re welcome. 😉  https://play.spotify.com/user/musicperson221/playlist/1sJojMoxl6xsRqVab4CLFV Continue reading
