Voices of readers

"Things I Have Noticed" by  Sophia Hembeck is the first book I've read in a single setting and which left me filled with thousands of different emotions and sentences so relatable they made me laugh and cry. This book is a warm hug. But not necessarily one of the comforting ones. It's a hug that accompanies you through dark places, holding you safe while inviting you to look into the abandoned corners of your own life. But simultaneously it's also that kind of hug you get when you celebrate life and yourself, survival and growth, a reminder that you aren't alone."
