    Love the title The author did a great job of tackling some not so easy subject matter This book revolved around Penelope Penny and her struggles with life She is a very relatable character that as many of us do, probably thinks that life is hard at times She is feeling down and frustrated with her husband and a bit green eyed jealous of her friend Jenny s perfect life.As life has it, we will find out that Jenny s life was not so perfect and in fact Penny doesn t have it all that bad The author dealt with some very serious issues of society today, being opioid addiction and overdose I am a nurse and believe me, this is an everyday issue that touches on lives than you might think It gives you an insight of what the friends and family have to deal with in the aftermath The grief and the guilt they have thinking they could have done to prevent it All in all this was a well thought out book I struggled a bit with it because it w...
