And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
Wow. Just wow. I was intrigued by the blurb summary of this book, and it did not disappoint. The imagery alone in the book makes it worth the read. I loved how the author personified the emotions of the protagonist. Despite it’s being a quick read, the writing showed a beautiful understanding of literary writing. The story itself is fabulous, and the ending — it’s wowing. I totally did not expect that ending At. All. Loved it.
Would I recommend this to fellow book-lovers? A thousand times, yes.
Would I recommend this to children/teens? Teens, yes. Children, no.
4 of 5 stars.
