Book Review: The More Beyond
I truly felt for Morton. Everything she was doing felt like a big, loud, cry for help. As soon as I met her parents, I felt distain for them. They were so in denial of what she was doing that they just wanted to "pretend" that they were a family with no issues.
For example: Mortan after surviving her latest attempt goes to visit her parents and the first thing her mom does is have to put on her wig and her father says they need to order room service and then they present her with a diamond necklace from Tiffany's.
As the story progresses, it does flash backwards so that we the reader get an inside look into Morton's childhood growing up with her parents. It does provide a clearer picture of how her relationship with her parents shaped her into her current life. Reading this book did feel "raw".
