not much happens in this book tbh. it kinda feels like reading a drunk person's account of a fever dream. the narrator is unhinged. luckily, i have a soft spot for unhinged woman.

Although the ending felt like an emotional cop-out… I am constantly remembering this piece of writing, and for better or for worse, that means it stands out, and you know I respect that

Non pensavo mi sarebbe piaciuto così tanto, ma sono molto grata per averlo letto. Non è qualcosa che si dimentica. Ho adorato poter stare nella sua testa, sapere ciò che sapeva lei, niente di più, niente di meno
