Reviews Elsewhere – The Existence of Amy by Lana Grace Riva

Reviews Elsewhere – The Existence of Amy by Lana Grace Riva

Caught this 5-star review of a novel by Emma earlier this week and wanted to share, as it may be of interest to some of you. In Emma’s words:

5*s for this beautiful insight into Amy’s life, and how she copes with OCD and mental health issues.  I found it a kind, interesting and beautiful novel about the lives of people we all meet everyday, who we may not realise are facing such challenges, and how the actions of others can make a  positive difference.

I came across this review on the Scene website, and I wanted to share it with you because one of the things we know is that LGBTQ+ folks are more likely to deal with mental health issues, and also suffer a higher rate of suicide. So while the book is about being Bi, and not directly about mental health, during Suicide Prevention Week I think it’s important to share resources for groups who often struggle with seeing their own stories told. Based on the review, I think this book seems like exactly that type of thing, a voice of an underserved group.
