Goodreads Synopsis:

Welcome to Camp Reset, a summer camp with a difference. A place offering a shot at “normality” for Olive, a girl on the edge, and for the new friends she never expected to make – who each have their own reasons for being there. Luckily Olive has a plan to solve all their problems. But how do you fix the world when you can’t fix yourself?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

This is my first Hole Bourne novel and I am so excited! Bourne is Usborne's top author and she has published quite a few YA novels. I am excited to see what I think of this book because I would definitely love to read more of her books.

Thank you so much to Penguin Random House South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for this reading this review, I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Final Thoughts: [where I gush all about this book]

Overall, I loved this book. I decided not to review this book in the typical format mainly because I think that this book is so important. Not only does it address different kinds of mental illness but it is also about how you can make someone's life a little easier. We see our main character, Olive, struggle through multiple situations where she seems conflicted. Should she help herself or should she help others first? Olive is also largely impacted by what people think of her. As a reader, we judge Olive for being affected by people's thoughts but we cannot deny that we are affecting the same way. I think the concept that Olive comes up with is inspiring and downright necessary. If you haven't had the chance to pick this book up. I urge you to do so. If you have a friend who is going through a tough time, give them this book. This book is all about showing that kindness is something that we should all try to spread and it is all about mental illness representation which is incredible. This book is accessible and the characters steal your heart from page one. This book is definitely in my top five books of 2018. Thank you so much to Holly Bourne for writing this book in such a difficult time. Thank you so much to Usborne Publishing for publishing this book. And a huge thank you to Penguin Random House South Africa for providing me with this incredible book. I can't wait to share this story with everyone.

Yours in Reading
