GoodReads Description

Norah has agoraphobia and OCD. When groceries are left on the porch, she can’t step out to get them. Struggling to snag the bags with a stick, she meets Luke. He’s sweet and funny, and he just caught her fishing for groceries. Because of course he did.

Norah can’t leave the house, but can she let someone in? As their friendship grows deeper, Norah realizes Luke deserves a normal girl. One who can lie on the front lawn and look up at the stars. One who isn’t so screwed up.
 

My opinion

Since I started reading Under Rose-Tainted Skies knew I was going to be hit emotionally, and I was.

The book is narrated by Norah, who suffers from anxiety,  OCD and agoraphobia. But what happens when a girl who is used to the routine that helps keep her mental problems comes  his new (and handsome) neighbor to remove everything that she has believed to have advanced.

For me, reading about Norah was something like a spiritual awakening, is that as a person with mental problems: anxiety, depression and OCD it was very easy to get along with her. There are so many people out there who do not understand how it is that we ran inside and how difficult it can be to deal with certain situations.

We all need a Luke (either as a boy or girl) to help us and motivate us to improve ourselves, as much as these problems be serious, there is always a way out.

Undoubtedly, a book that will not leave anyone indifferent and the reader will be delighted with the characters from beginning to end . A raw, realistic and hopeful story.
