From a young age CeCe copes with her mother's crippling depression, their severe poverty, an absentee father, and her own insecurities. With gorgeous language, a vivid cast of characters, and an eye for poignant detail, Dasha Kelly tells the story of CeCe's struggle to break free from the grips of codependency and poverty to find confidence and success in her career and her personal life, finally becoming the strong woman she's always dreamed of being.
CeCe couldn't remember when her mother became too weak to carry anything but tears. When the Sad started to come, pressing her mother to their bed, her Mama cried slick silent tears for a long, long time. Longer than a game of hopscotch. Longer than singing the alphabet in her head five times. Longer than a nap, even. The Sad made her mother cry all the time.

"Almost Crimson" is a story about the life of CeCe. It starts off with CeCe being a little girl and having to be the adult in her relationship with her mother. Her mother suffers from depression and CeCe must learn how to pay the bills, take care of her mother, etc. We watch CeCe as she grows up and learns to navigate her world with her mother always on the periphery. I enjoyed this book. I really liked the way the author would alternate chapters between the life of CeCe and the life of her mother... to help us understand how CeCe's mother got to the place she is when we start the story. It shows how devastating depression can be if left untreated. I would recommend this story to teenagers on up. The author writing style is enjoyable. ** I received this book as part of GoodReads Member Giveaways. The opinion is solely my own and not influenced by the giveaway. **
