This book ripped my heart out of my chest and made me cry tears onto it. It upset me to no end but I loved every minute of it! I’m also not sure how to talk about this book without giving stuff away so this review is mostly going to just be my emotions about the book.
Kate Hart’s characters were so incredibly real. I felt like I actually knew all of them in real life, like we were actually friends and so it hurt me when things happened to them. My roommates had to deal with me going through insane waves of emotion while reading this because I became so incredibly invested in these characters and their lives. After I finished the book, I called my mom and took a long walk while I talked to her about it because I just had to unpack it. I never saw any of the twists coming and, after talking to my mom about it, I realized it was because the characters were so well written, so fully developed, that I was completely living in the moment with each and every one of them as I was reading. I wasn’t thinking ahead because I was so invested in what was happening in each and every moment.
This is not a book to read if you are looking for a light and happy read. That said, it is definitely a book you should read. It is amazingly written and incredibly powerful. Pick this one up when you need a good cry.
A sign of a good book, to me, is one that I can’t stop thinking about. And I finished this book a month ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. Great, great work, Kate Hart.
