    Review: All of You All of Me by Claudia Y. Burgoa

    All of You All of MeAll of You All of Me by Claudia Y. Burgoa

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    ✯✯✯ 4 “Who says who’s normal” Stars!! ✯✯✯

    All of You, All of Me was the first book I’ve EVER read from Claudia Y. Burgoa and I’m wondering what took me so long. While her writing was a bit different than what I’m accustomed to, it was no less powerful or eloquent in its delivery. And as this story tackles mental health issues, it was handled with the right amount of care.

    Hunter has dealt with agoraphobia, profound grief, and asocial tendencies. For the most part, he’s got a handle on his issues. He’s been through therapy and has put himself through law school, which makes it evident that he’s found a way to conquer his fear of the outside. Have all of his fears been laid to rest? No. However, he’s still a work in progress and tries not to make excuses for it. Willow has battled severe personality disorders and has been misdiagnosed in the past. Her issues have stunted her own personal growth and have laid waste to her interpersonal relationships. The only people she can count on and trust are her little sister and herself. And then a chance encounter with Hunter has her believing that a connection can exist outside her self-imposed bubble. And this connection has Hunter believing that he’s found someone to share his forever with. Can two broken people create a whole? Well, that’s what this story is all about. How two people who have their own issues can be there to help the other shoulder theirs.

    What Hunter and Willow shared was so beautiful and I don’t think it’s limited to those who realize their own frailties. I think everyone has got a chink in their armor and we would all be so lucky to find someone who not only accepts our faults but loves us despite and because of them. It was easy to recognize Hunter’s love for Willow in the face of all of the ugliness she holds inside and never once did these flaws force him to let go. He loved her stronger, harder and everlasting and I couldn’t help but respect the heck out of his character. If this is the type of work to expect from Burgoa, count me in!!
