While unreliable, it is still honest The feelings and emotions are what make this story really relatable.On top of the emotion, the story takes place with the backdrop of The Occupy Wall Street and the Iraq War These events have a critical impact on Billy’s life and have led him to this moment Even though the pace of the book is pretty slow, it makes up for it with complex layers and characters I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.Thank you to the author and JKS Communications for the opportunity to read this book! Although, I don't think this book will be for everyone this was a great story that I enjoyed It will make you want to keep those you love near you and the mental health issues were done very well I loved the characters and the story and I will come back to read this one again Go Into This One Knowing: Mental Health, LGBT Themes David Puretz crafts a captivating narrative that takes your breath away The themes of abuse and family dysfunction make you reflect on your own life and remind you to value those close to you There are LGBTQ themes as well which was really nice to see within a literary fiction novel.
