Without Merit is a book about family dynamics from a teenager’s perspective. Young adult is not my favourite genre, but Colleen Hoover always writes well, displaying a knack of describing real people and the situations they find themselves in either by default or design. The fleshing out of the family members (blood & found) was delightful. I find there are never caricatures or perfect people in Ms Hoover’s books. Everyone is the right amount of messed up. The best part of this story was mental health plot line. The realization that all was not as it should be was perfectly paced for both the person it affected and those around them. I hope that anyone who needs the message that depression comes in many forms finds it.
