I’m on Your Side, like this review, is a very quick read. The tone of the prose is perfectly young adult: slightly melodramatic, self-assured yet vulnerable. Reading this book meant taking a step back in time emotionally. I remembered the anger I felt towards the chaos of the world.
I believe that books, like people, are rarely a lost cause. But, I also believe that when a relationship goes sour, the bravest, wisest thing you can do is to let go.
Every generation has the option to grow, to adapt, to become stronger. It also has the option to idle, to dig in its heels and pretend a problem will go away if only the symptoms are ignored.
