What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Struggling to deal with her brother's death and a past she refuses to confront, Stevie knows she has problems. But she's still furious about the fact that she's been packed off to a health clinic, in the middle of nowhere, where mobile phones are banned and communication with the outside world is strictly by permission only. The regimented and obtrusive nature of the clinic and its staff is torture to the deeply private, obstinate Stevie - and don't even get her started on the other 'inmates'.

All she wants is to be left alone...But as Stevie is about to find out, life is full of surprises. And she will prove herself stronger than she knows - even when her past finally catches her up in the most shocking and brutal way possible.

My two-bits:

A serious read indeed.

The tough road to healing in mind, body and spirit are addressed in this story that deals with different kinds of loss for a teen including grief from death, parents divorce and self love.

The process that the main character goes through was handled well in pacing and with relationships formed at the clinic.
