I loved the style of Love and Leftovers. I can also definitely say that Marcie reminded me of myself in many ways when I was younger. She is a girl struggling with her parents issues, and trying to fit in somewhere in the meantime. I felt as if she lost herself somewhere along the way through her parents divorce, having to take care of her depressed mother, instead of living her normal childhood that she so deserved. Being taken away from her school and her home, forced to live in a town and meet new people while struggling to saty in contact with her best friends back home. I can't say that I don't blame her for trying to find love and friendship from someone else. Marcie is lonely. She isn't living her life. Only following a routine created by her parents decisions which effect her tremendously and shouldn't. She has been burdened by this, but in the end, comes out on top. Through it all, she does an amazing job at finding herself, and what she wants out of life.
