    The thing about my diary is that I lied in it. I obscured the truth. I never told even the empty space around me the whole story. I was afraid someone would find it, read it, know me. I wanted them to know a different girl. A better one. Fellow book lovers? please can we not let t...

    I received an ARC of this book from The Fantastic Flying Book Club in exchange for an honest review. I thought I knew what is was like to be invisible. I thought I could disappear, but now, I fight to touch anything real and I vanish. First off, the cover is gorgeous. It's prob...

    This is heartrending and haunting. There?s just no other way to describe it. No, it wasn?t a fun or enjoyable book to read, by any means, but I?d read it again and again. I hope everyone gets the chance to pick this one up, because (and I don?t get to say this very often) e...

    This book contains the topic of rape culture, it might be a trigger for people. This book is about Ellie who disappeared after being captured and assaulted. Ellie tells us the story of what is happening and how she got there in her own words. At first when I was reading I didn?...

    I finished I STOP SOMEWHERE right before having to go out to a party. Talk about emotional whiplash. But in the end I'm glad for it, because leaving the house after reading this helped to get me out of my head. Carter's book is.. the only word I could think of yesterday as to descri...

    This is heartrending and haunting. There?s just no other way to describe it. No, it wasn?t a fun or enjoyable book to read, by any means, but I?d read it again and again. I hope everyone gets the chance to pick this one up, because (and I don?t get to say this very often) e...

    I received this eARC uncorrected galley from Feiwel & Friends on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. A warning before I begin. This book focuses on very heavy topics that may be triggers for some readers. If you ha...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars Oh my feels! My emotions are on overload right now. This was so heartbreaking, and one of the biggest reasons why, is because things like this really happen. A really powerful story, that was beautifully told. I thought I had prepared myself for this book. ...

    Harrowing. I knew this book would break my heart - but I wasn't prepared for it to shred it. TE Carter's writing pulls no punches; it's unapologetic and gorgeous and raw. Ellie is such a painfully relatable protagonist. We all know an Ellie, and I'm sure many of us have been an Ellie a...

    Oh man...THIS BOOK!!! It does so many things startlingly well -- so well that the author makes them look easy. As a writer, I can assure you they are not. I'm not going to list all of them here because this review would turn into a tome of praise, but I want to talk about at least a...

    Can you disappear if you?re already invisible? Blending in feels better than being bullied to freshman Ellie Frias. But when Caleb, a boy from the right side of the tracks notices her, Ellie isn?t sure the wants to be part of the background anymore. But being a rich kids from a pro...

    Reading this book wrecked me -- and I mean that in the best possible way. It is an unflinching examination of rape culture, a poetic portrait of an invisible girl, and an unputdownable mystery. Don't miss it. ...

    Poetic and searing snapshot of rape culture at work in a decaying town. Visceral with both rage and tenderness and impossible to put down. ...

    I feel really guilty rating this book 1 star but I can't bring myself to rate this any higher. I understand that what this author really wanted to do was show us the ugly and brutal world of rape culture but unfortunately they contributed to it instead. This is not a positive message f...

    This book was meant to make you uncomfortable, as we all should be when exploring and challenging rape culture. I Stop Somewhere has many tough to digest scenes and won?t leave you with a HEA, because this is real life. If you loved The Female of the Species or Moxie, I Stop Somewher...

    Harrowing. I knew this book would break my heart - but I wasn't prepared for it to shred it. TE Carter's writing pulls no punches; it's unapologetic and gorgeous and raw. Ellie is such a painfully relatable protagonist. We all know an Ellie, and I'm sure many of us have been an Ellie a...

    Oh man...THIS BOOK!!! It does so many things startlingly well -- so well that the author makes them look easy. As a writer, I can assure you they are not. I'm not going to list all of them here because this review would turn into a tome of praise, but I want to talk about at least a...

    Can you disappear if you?re already invisible? Blending in feels better than being bullied to freshman Ellie Frias. But when Caleb, a boy from the right side of the tracks notices her, Ellie isn?t sure the wants to be part of the background anymore. But being a rich kids from a pro...

    A book that can make my eyes hurt because of crying deserves 5 stars. ------------------------------------------------------- I just want to be a girl. All the parts of me that made me real. Maybe a lot of things make a girl, but I think being alive is the ?n I miss most Tr...

    Reading this book wrecked me -- and I mean that in the best possible way. It is an unflinching examination of rape culture, a poetic portrait of an invisible girl, and an unputdownable mystery. Don't miss it. ...

    Poetic and searing snapshot of rape culture at work in a decaying town. Visceral with both rage and tenderness and impossible to put down. ...

    I feel really guilty rating this book 1 star but I can't bring myself to rate this any higher. I understand that what this author really wanted to do was show us the ugly and brutal world of rape culture but unfortunately they contributed to it instead. This is not a positive message f...

    This book was meant to make you uncomfortable, as we all should be when exploring and challenging rape culture. I Stop Somewhere has many tough to digest scenes and won?t leave you with a HEA, because this is real life. If you loved The Female of the Species or Moxie, I Stop Somewher...

    This book is amazing, heartbreaking, beautiful, and one nobody should miss reading. ...

    A lyrical, stirring story surrounding rape culture in a dying town. This book is impossible to put down. I read I STOP SOMEWHERE in one sitting and was filled with so many emotions?anger, rage, and sadness. The story is written with much empathy and I look forward to reading more by ...

    Told from the perspective of a dead girl, this is a book that explores sexual assault, rape, and rape culture. When Ellie meets Caleb, she thinks she's finally found someone to help her feel like she belongs in her small, dead end town. He, by turns, shows her affection then hatred...

    I received an ARC of this book from The Fantastic Flying Book Club in exchange for an honest review. I thought I knew what is was like to be invisible. I thought I could disappear, but now, I fight to touch anything real and I vanish. First off, the cover is gorgeous. It's prob...

    Absolutely riveting and heartbreaking. Trigger warnings for rape, sexual assault, murder, violence. Full review to come. ...

    This is literally one of the best books I've ever read in my entire life. I'm literally sitting here sobbing and trying to pull my thoughts together. This is an exquisite masterpiece. ...

    This book contains the topic of rape culture, it might be a trigger for people. This book is about Ellie who disappeared after being captured and assaulted. Ellie tells us the story of what is happening and how she got there in her own words. At first when I was reading I didn?...

    I finished I STOP SOMEWHERE right before having to go out to a party. Talk about emotional whiplash. But in the end I'm glad for it, because leaving the house after reading this helped to get me out of my head. Carter's book is.. the only word I could think of yesterday as to descri...

    This is heartrending and haunting. There?s just no other way to describe it. No, it wasn?t a fun or enjoyable book to read, by any means, but I?d read it again and again. I hope everyone gets the chance to pick this one up, because (and I don?t get to say this very often) e...

    I received this eARC uncorrected galley from Feiwel & Friends on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. A warning before I begin. This book focuses on very heavy topics that may be triggers for some readers. If you ha...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars Oh my feels! My emotions are on overload right now. This was so heartbreaking, and one of the biggest reasons why, is because things like this really happen. A really powerful story, that was beautifully told. I thought I had prepared myself for this book. ...

    Harrowing. I knew this book would break my heart - but I wasn't prepared for it to shred it. TE Carter's writing pulls no punches; it's unapologetic and gorgeous and raw. Ellie is such a painfully relatable protagonist. We all know an Ellie, and I'm sure many of us have been an Ellie a...

    Oh man...THIS BOOK!!! It does so many things startlingly well -- so well that the author makes them look easy. As a writer, I can assure you they are not. I'm not going to list all of them here because this review would turn into a tome of praise, but I want to talk about at least a...

    Can you disappear if you?re already invisible? Blending in feels better than being bullied to freshman Ellie Frias. But when Caleb, a boy from the right side of the tracks notices her, Ellie isn?t sure the wants to be part of the background anymore. But being a rich kids from a pro...

    A book that can make my eyes hurt because of crying deserves 5 stars. ------------------------------------------------------- I just want to be a girl. All the parts of me that made me real. Maybe a lot of things make a girl, but I think being alive is the ?n I miss most Tr...

    Reading this book wrecked me -- and I mean that in the best possible way. It is an unflinching examination of rape culture, a poetic portrait of an invisible girl, and an unputdownable mystery. Don't miss it. ...

    Poetic and searing snapshot of rape culture at work in a decaying town. Visceral with both rage and tenderness and impossible to put down. ...
