Ugh. I found this book deeply annoying, shallow, self-indulgent, and derivative. Just a hair more so than Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen, so if you liked that book, don't listen to me about this one. I just wanted to smack the main character here.
Extremely sympathetic main character. Very easy to read and deeply moving at times. You journey with Isabel as her life falls apart and she slowly puts it back together. You discover her back story in bits and pieces as she confronts those "demons". Very enjoyable.
