Ever since Esther Solar's grandfather met Death, her entire family has been cursed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime -- a fear that will eventually lead each and every one of them to their graves. Take Esther's father, for instance: he's an aporaphobe who hasn't left the basement in six years. Then there's her twin brother, Eugene, whose fear of the dark goes far beyond the things that go bump in the night. And her mother, Rosemary, is terrified of bad luck. As for Esther, she's managed to escape the curse... so far. She doesn't yet have a great fear because she avoids pretty much everything. Elevators, small space, crowds -- anything that might trigger a phobia is off-limits and is recorded in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares. Esther thinks she has it all figured out, until she's reunited with an old classmate -- and first crush -- Jonah Smallwood. An unexpected friendship between two develops and together they face one phobia at a time, only to discover the one fear they hadn't counted on: love.

Fifty fears, fifty weeks. Every week Esther will face a fear with the help of her friend Jonah in an attempt to find Death and break a curse on her family. This book was incredible and I'm so emotionally impacted because it covered some really dark and serious themes but Krystal Sutherland did so very well with it. I didn't expect it to go down a more serious pathway into depression and anxiety because I went in pretty blind but it was extremely comforting in the way she wrote about those subjects because it was also shining a light on how those things can be hidden and how they impact you every moment of your day. Overall I felt that this book was not only an enjoyable, exciting read but it also seemed in my opinion like a message to each reader on how we're all stronger than we realise and worth much more than we think.
