This was a cute found family story with an underlying romance between the protagonists. If you can get past the stalking and the very Mary Sue-ness of the main characters it's an ok read. I will say I liked the elements towards the end even though they felt out of place with the rest of the story.

To be fair, I 100% wanted to read this book simply because of the cover and title. It was truly a precious story! If you like reading cute, sometimes cheesy, happily-ever-afters with a bit of fantasy, this is for you! I really appreciated the many different representations for the queer community, and the focus on found family. Loved the characters, but I wish I had even more background on them!
