My take on the show.
1 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Loved this show, I didn't hear about it till the season was over, which means I had to force myself not to watch all the episodes in one day! It's insightful and portrays mental illness with respect and as a real issue, not a joke like so many other shows can. The characters were thought out and felt like actual people with a life and history's. I am no longer a teen, have not been for years; but I still related to the main character. I loved how realistic it was, her thoughts and reactions to things. It was not at all far-fetched, where the viewer has to remind themselves its a TV show, I actually felt like all the events were common and normal. I was laughing and crying and I can't wait till the second season is out!
