Good book. Not great, but kept me interested and had an interesting take on the classic Romeo and Juliet type thing while weaving in the issue of racism.

There were aspects of this book that I liked , in terms of pacing and characterisation , but the writing wasn't for me. The plot moved in a very unexpected direction and I was frustrated for the characters but, overall, I didn't enjoy this book as someone who likes a happy ending or at least some hope. The writing wasn't for me  and the themes weren't executed in a way I appreciated, but I think this book could be a favourite for someone else with different taste.
