In her shoes ~ 9 ~

My heroine this week is Olivia from Emerald City by Alicia K. Leppert. To be honest, I don't really want to step in her shoes for the first few chapters, and the reason is because she was suicidal. She was depressed beyond her wits and had given up on life and everything. And she decided to just give in, to let go of life and never come back to it again.
And then a stranger saved her and took care of her and changed her view of life and living. She turned in one eighty and became a totally different person. She started coming out of her shell, talking with people, making friends. But the greatest accomplishment was that she never even for a second went back to consider killing herself again.
No, she dug up her bravery from deep inside and made it her shield. And she opened up her heart to the people around her. By the second half of the book, Olivia was becoming a strong person with a huge desire to live. And that is what I really loved about her. Because she changed so much in a positive direction, that she truly blew me away!!!
