I've been following Hannah for a little over a year on her writing YouTube channel. I love her sense of humor and her advice on writing and publishing has been very useful. 

This is the first time I've read short stories that aren't connected to an existing bigger story. I wasn't sure what kind of stories to expect based on her channel. Each of these stories hit me in a different way. Some were funny, most cover deep and dark topics. 

The short stories aren't connected, beyond mostly the shared subject matter of mental health. Some of the stories are as long as a couple pages long, some are as short as a sentence or paragraph. Since they aren't really interconnected, I don't really know how to review this beyond this.

But if this sounds like something you'd enjoy, I highly recommend it.
