10 Things I Can See From Here deals with a lot and I mean a lot in just 320 pages. At times I felt like I was getting way to much information about every body else but not a whole lot about the main character Maeve. Maeve has a lot on her plate but throughout the book I think she handles it pretty good considering her anxiety and panic attacks. 10 Things I Can See From Here was a good book that at times the characters and their decisions drove me a bit bonkers. How could they not see Maeve needed their love and support – she was what comes first not what they wanted! Maeve’s step brothers and stepmom were awesome and really without them in her life I’m not sure she would have had any loving support that she needed!
summary: Think positive. Don’t worry, be happy. Keep calm and carry on. Maeve has heard it all before. She’s been struggling with severe anxiety for a long time, and as much as she wishes it were something she could just talk herself out of, it’s not. When Maeve is sent to Vancouver to live with her dad, her very pregnant stepmom, and her twin six-year-old half brothers, she struggles to rise to the challenge.
Vancouver brings a wide array of new worries, but Maeve finds brief respite—as well as even more worries—in Salix, a local girl who doesn’t seem to worry about anything. Though the summer includes catastrophes than even Maeve could never have foreseen, she is able to reach inside herself to find the courage to be there for the ones she loves.
