REVIEW: Countless by Karen Gregory

When Hedda discovers she is pregnant, she calls a truce with her eating disorder until the baby is born. However, once the baby is born Hedda, who is used to counting numbers, realises that some things in life are Countless.

I really loved Countless. Many books about mental health are difficult to read, but this isn’t one of those. It’s written with sensitivity, and although Hedda counts numbers throughout her story, not once is one of those numbers explicitly mentioned. It is an emotive story of love and choices, and is easily one of the standout debuts of the year.

Stars: ★★★★★
