Reader reviewed by the book muncher

As she sees it, Anna Bloom has been carted off to the loony bin. Why? Anna has extremely low self-esteem. She is constantly afraid people will make fun of her for how she looks or what she does. This fear makes her have panic attacks. And apparently, Annas parents just didnt know how to deal with her, so they sent her off to a slightly crazy shrink (who thought everything was sexual in some way). When that didnt work, she was then sent to Lakeland Hospital, a mental institution. And a strange one, as Anna sees it.

The rules and hierarchy at Lakeland are confusing to Anna at first because no one explains them to her. But during her three week stay, things actually start to get better. She starts to lose weight. Her new roommate, who happens to be pregnant, becomes a great friend. And then theres the cutie Justin who just might like Anna back.

Get Well Soon was told in diary entries and letters to Annas friend Tracy over the course of three weeks. It was a very cute book, but one that could be improved. Annas love of music couldve been more developed. Julie Halpern mentions how Annas music always makes her feel better, but doesnt really go into depth. Thats fine thought because music wasnt the focus of the novel. I really enjoyed the cast of characters; even the creepy ones were in some way lovable or at least funny to read about. Anna did grow as a person, although not that much, but then again, I dont think she had that many problems to begin with. I also highly enjoyed the romance between Anna and Justin.

All in all, Get Well Soon was one of the sweetest books Ive read in a while. It left off on a bittersweet note, but one that was hopeful. If you like a lighthearted and short read, check out Get Well Soon.
