I picked up this book at Heartland Fall Forum because of its awesome cover (because, to be honest, I still very much decide what to read because of its cover) and decided to read it after I saw it on the February Indie Next List.
This is quite a short book but it took me forever to read, which is always a sign to me that I just couldn’t get into the book. Looking back, I believe that I was too young for this book (which I don’t usually feel) because I didn’t feel connected to anything that was happening in the book. Kitamura’s writing was nice but I found the story to be lacking. I feel like there were a couple different plot lines that were set up and then never came to fruition. I didn’t dislike this book but I also didn’t really enjoy it. I’m pretty lukewarm on the whole situation.
