I’m cold and alone and I’m dead. There’s no air in my lungs. My chest is as cold and hollow as a cave on a snow-capped mountain side. My heart no longer beats there. Frigid winds whistle through my ribs and the sadness inside me weeps like my favorite tree.
Days ago, I met with death face to face. The mirror, our meeting place. My two darkened green eyes stared deeply into hers. I tilted my head to the side. She did too.
“It’s time,” I whispered.
“It’s time,” she whispered.
And with that I turned away from her, the woman in the mirror who knew all of my secrets and all of my pain. I walked away from her and yet we’d never been closer than we were in that moment. The inner struggle was over. No more arguing with the woman in the mirror. No more arguing with myself. The choice was made. She was the victor. Or was I?
That was the day Riah Winter died.
"I know my truth. My truth is everyone else’s lies. My lies are their comfort. Telling the truth makes people uncomfortable."
A breathtaking, heartbreaking, life changing reality check. Kathryn Perez has done it again. The words she weaves, they cut me open, they touch my soul, they devour my being!
By the blurb you know this one is going to be profound. It's dark, the emotion exquisitely written, the meaning is without a doubt, one of the best I've ever read. There were no boundaries, this book reached in and pulled out my insecurities, spoke my secrets, and spilled my truth. The message is worth the journey, look into the mirror. You know who I'd recommend this book to? Everyone. Anyone. You.
"You’re only as sick as your secrets. I don’t know how much longer I can keep mine."
I can't go into detail about the story, I'm not capable of detailing this book without spoilers. You have to take this journey on your own, you have to dive right in, don't let anyone spoil it for you. This book will touch you, it's doesn't matter where you come from or where you've been, it's going to beat down your door.
Kathryn Perez you dug deep for this, you spoke from shadows, you delved into the dark recesses of the mind.
I applaud you.
