started it at the end of September If felt just like the name of the title this grayland where our protagonist, Marina, lives in a state of limbo I could connect to her on some level, not only because she is hispanic, but because I too have felt like my life is at this stalled point where I don t know how to move forward It s scary because you re supposed to know what you want to do and when and where You re supposed to enjoy life, but y I didn t know how I felt about this book when I first started it at the end of September If felt just like the name of the title this grayland where our

depressed level she lives in, and also on being the sister of a sibling who has been molested All throughout the story though, I had one reoccurring question Who is the gray man While I never do get a response to that question, I do think he stands as a sort of symbol of depression and a representation of wishes we ask life to grant us Like do overs I think he is freaky though, along with that creepy locket Marina finds that haunts her when she tries to get rid of it This gave me a lot to think about in regards to how people deal with life and grief, butespecially about depression It made me reflect on my own life.4 Platypires
