Prose: 7 out of 10
Character/Execution: 7 out of 10
Overall: 7.00 out of 10


Plot/Idea: Bianco delivers a chronicle of personal self-discovery that will resonate with other readers searching to better understand their own predicaments and psychological impasses. 

Prose: Bianco has an inviting, lively, and compelling writing style that is occasionally hampered by excessive detail. The work would benefit from general tightening for clarity and flow.

Originality: Stories of battling back from addiction and other setbacks are familiar, but Bianco takes a fresh, often darkly humored approach, while also poignantly exploring fault, accountability, and forgiveness when navigating recovery. 

Character/Execution: Readers will have no difficulty empathizing with Bianco along her complex journey, while additional 'characters' in her story emerge as equally fully dimensional.
