‘Jessica’s writing is captivating and she gives the reader a real insight as to what it is like to live with ME. Please read to raise awareness for all sufferers.’ Amazon review
‘One theme that runs strongly throughout the book is hope. Jessica constantly demonstrates how hope for something better keeps her going in the darker times, she set herself goals, and whether she succeeded or not, she would not give up. This resilience isn’t born out of foolhardiness but years of learning how to live strategically with the ME monster.’ The Low Side Blog
‘I don’t want you to think that it is a ‘misery memoir’, because at its centre is a sparky, funny, angry and philosophical young woman determined to survive against the odds’ Goodreads
