I happened across this memoir while searching my library's catalogue for books about Borderline Personality Disorder. I was intrigued by the title and that it's written from the perspective of a BPD survivor (for lack of a better term). The book itself read more like a textbook at times, which really took me away from Van Gelder's story. I think most people who'd pick up this memoir would do so because it's about BPD, so it stands to reason that most of your readers will already know enough about the disorder to dive right into your story without having to waste time on formalities. Van Gelder really misses the mark in this way, making the book overall a less interesting read than I hoped for. Not a terrible book, but not terribly good either.
This book is explicitly racist and classist at moments.
I really enjoyed this book because its the first time I have found a book that is about Borderline Personality Disorder that gives a person hope for recovery. Kiera keeps it upbeat at times while also talking candidly about the struggles. I would recommend for anyone who struggles with this disorder.
Looking forward to reading this book. It was highly recommended by a sufferer of Borderline Personality Disorder who as gotten her emotions under control.
This was great. Very relate-able, very sympathetic, very informed.
so helpful! definitely one of the best books on borderline personality that I've read so far.
A very well written page-turner.
An amazing book. It was one of the only borderline stories I could truly relate too.
