Hannah: My True Story of Drugs, Cutting, and Mental Illness - Hannah Westberg Hannah is an emotional and powerful autobiography. She has a strong voice, and it took me on quite a journey. There are so many things going against Hannah, and on the other hand, she builds some promising relationships and has wonderful opportunities but her depression and BPD interferes. This is a book that I recommend, but you have to be prepared for gritty, edgy, and dark. The pacing felt a little off to me- it was not linear but grouped and it was a bit disorienting. I like that she ended the book with a bit of light at the end of the tunnel, but she does not sugarcoat anything. She gives a realistic outlook for herself, and is thinking positive, but not impossible.
