I loved this book.
I particularly loved how the writer managed to make sadness a protagonist of this book, together with Kayden, Alex and Mahala.
Yet, this book is not sad. Not exactly. It's melancholic. Kayden is a young woman battling, questioning and surviving her own sadness... Her sadness is b...

As the book dealt with grief and depression I cannot say I really enjoyed reading it. I mean, I wasn't in the greatest mood when I started this. I was surprised though the author could make such a solid book out of the journal entries of a troubled girl trying her best to escape the depr...

This was an incredible book that dealt with so many issues but did it really well. I wish I had found a book like this when I was younger and needed it.

I was very impressed with this book. Honestly, it reminds me a lot of the Perks of Being a Wallflower. However, it is different in many ways. Especially like the whole journal entry theme. Beautiful book! Great job.

Keeping Long Island — Courtney Peppernell (3 Parts, broken up into dates, journal-style) — Dec. 20, 2017-Jan. 8, 2018
This book is a very well written literary book; that it has LBGTQA* characters as central protagonists is beside the point. I started reading this book in 2017, and it felt very he...

This book was wonderful. I usually don't like the conceit of a book written in diary entries, but wow. This one was so well done. Kayden is a broken young woman whose therapist suggested she keep a diary to help her learn how to share her feelings. She writes each entry as if she were talking to...

This is one of the most amazing books I've read in a long time. When I began it, I wondered if it would appeal to me because the main character, Kayden, was writing messages in the first person in a journal, and that seemed to be all the book was. I wasn't sure it would hold my interest. But the...

Another book that isn’t my typical genre, but I actually really enjoyed reading it. There were so many themes explored in this novel-anxiety and depression, general sadness, sexuality, ETC. Most importantly, though, I think it sends out a good message that anyone could benefit from. It’s OK to be...

KEEPING LONG ISLAND
GOOD BOOK ABOUT ACCEPTANCE, LOVE, AND SELF- WORTH. I ALSO LIKE HOW ISSUES SUCH AS BULLYING WERE POINTED OUT AND IT IS A TESTAMENT TO KAYDENS WILL TO SURVIVE, HER INNER STRENGTH THAT SHE DID NOT SUCCOMB BUT GREW STRONGER AND TRIUMPHED IN THE END. WE CAN ALL BE SO LUCKY.

This book helped me so much. Just wanna thank Courtney Peppernell for having written this story. It helped me to grow, to share, to have confidence and to be proud of who I am. I recommend this book to anyone who feels a little bit disorientated or alone. But also to someone who’s looking for a q...
