    1. I loved this book.I particularly loved how the writer managed to make sadness a protagonist of this book, together with Kayden, Alex and Mahala.Yet, this book is not sad. Not exactly. It's melancholic. Kayden is a young woman battling, questioning and surviving her own sadness Her sadness is born out of tragedy and misplaced guilt, yet what we witness is her desire to resist instead of giving in to it. It's poignant and touching. Kayden is one of the good guys of this world. A sweet and sensible [...]

    2. 3.5 starsAs the book dealt with grief and depression I cannot say I really enjoyed reading it. I mean, I wasn't in the greatest mood when I started this. I was surprised though the author could make such a solid book out of the journal entries of a troubled girl trying her best to escape the depression and anxiety which overwhelmed her at times. I thought it worked for the most part with some of the entries almost reading like a conventional story. Certainly a brave choice of the author. Maybe t [...]

    3. InterestingThis was an incredible book that dealt with so many issues but did it really well. I wish I had found a book like this when I was younger and needed it.

    4. I was very impressed with this book. Honestly, it reminds me a lot of the Perks of Being a Wallflower. However, it is different in many ways. Especially like the whole journal entry theme. Beautiful book! Great job.

    5. Hacía bastante tiempo que no leía nada en el formato de cartas/diario y la verdad es que había olvidado lo mucho que me gustaba.Esta es una historia de duelo. Vemos a la protagonista lidiando con el duelo, superándolo y aceptando la muerte de un ser querido. Lo mejor es que es una historia llena de esperanza. Me ha gustado ver esto en una novela en la que pasan cosas tan negativas. La protagonista es lesbiana y su madre no se toma bien su salida del armario. Por tanto, vemos cómo eso la afe [...]

    6. Keeping Long Island — Courtney Peppernell (3 Parts, broken up into dates, journal-style) — Dec. 20, 2017-Jan. 8, 2018This book is a very well written literary book; that it has LBGTQA* characters as central protagonists is beside the point. I started reading this book in 2017, and it felt very heavy in the beginning, so I set it aside. Then I picked it up in the new year, I held on to it and was very glad I re-started it from the beginning.While many readers will take this at face value, the [...]

    7. This book was wonderful. I usually don't like the conceit of a book written in diary entries, but wow. This one was so well done. Kayden is a broken young woman whose therapist suggested she keep a diary to help her learn how to share her feelings. She writes each entry as if she were talking to someone she calls "Keeper" as in Secret Keeper. And it felt like she was talking to me.I haven't highlighted so many passages in a Kindle book before in my life. There are awkwards turns of phrase, but t [...]

    8. This is one of the most amazing books I've read in a long time. When I began it, I wondered if it would appeal to me because the main character, Kayden, was writing messages in the first person in a journal, and that seemed to be all the book was. I wasn't sure it would hold my interest. But the more I read, the more involved, intrigued, and emotionally drawn in I became. After a while I couldn't put the book down. This is a wonderful story of a lesbian college student healing from a tragedy, ab [...]

    9. Another book that isn’t my typical genre, but I actually really enjoyed reading it. There were so many themes explored in this novel-anxiety and depression, general sadness, sexuality, ETC. Most importantly, though, I think it sends out a good message that anyone could benefit from. It’s OK to be sad. It’s alright to not be okay sometimes. Regardless, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Well done

    10. KEEPING LONG ISLANDGOOD BOOK ABOUT ACCEPTANCE, LOVE, AND SELF- WORTH. I ALSO LIKE HOW ISSUES SUCH AS BULLYING WERE POINTED OUT AND IT IS A TESTAMENT TO KAYDENS WILL TO SURVIVE, HER INNER STRENGTH THAT SHE DID NOT SUCCOMB BUT GREW STRONGER AND TRIUMPHED IN THE END. WE CAN ALL BE SO LUCKY.

    11. This book helped me so much. Just wanna thank Courtney Peppernell for having written this story. It helped me to grow, to share, to have confidence and to be proud of who I am. I recommend this book to anyone who feels a little bit disorientated or alone. But also to someone who’s looking for a queer story :)

    12. Good F/F college romance story. Lots of personal struggles and gains. Realistic writing with many intelligent thoughts added. Good reading, pulls in the reader and holds him captive.

    13. I loved how the book was set up as journal entries from the main character. I am not a fast reader but I finished this book in 4 days. I really only read on my 30 minute lunch break but found myself reading it when I got home from work.

    14. InsightfulEasy read, insightful, with lasting impressions. I love to read stories that takes me on a journey of heart, mind, body, and soul. It was particularly helpful in underlining the importance of being nonjudgmental when it comes to our feelings. Well written.

    15. Longing for the next entryWasn't sure I'd get into a book written as a journal, but I couldn't wait for the next entry! The story basically takes place over the course of one year, detailing the emotional life of the journal writer.

    18. A Journey An interesting and different way to tell a story. It's done completely with journal entries. A journey from sadness to love and the rocky road.

    22. For such a "new" author (and I use new because this is her third published book, however second work of fiction) this hits in all the right places. This story follows Kayden through a time of her life using journal like entries. I loved Kayden's stories and the people in her life. I wanted this novel to never end, but I understood why it had to. Read this. You will not be disappointed. Also The Manta at the end is everything.
