Brutal and beautiful, I Stop Somewhere is a staple must for everyone. It’s not the easiest book to read, but it tackles issues that need to be spoken about from head on, and therefore sets an example for cases prevalent today that should and must be discussed. Ellie Frias is in no way the model example of a girl who has gone through what others also have gone through in society today, but brings a sense of determination and urgency, which I found inspiring and compelling to read. Despite the fact that I know some characters are purposefully cliqué, personally I would have liked to see a little more depth to those in particular. Nevertheless, I thought that the depth to Ellie’s character was stunning and I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone who sees how important these topics need to be addressed today.
