I love the book but felt like there was a lot of unanswered questions. I wasn’t too satisfied with the ending.

Not enough Roe. Could’ve been another 5/5 if there was more Roe. Aside from that, I have no notes, only incoherent screaming

There are a lot of different themes discuss (which is good), but they’re not discussed to the length I would have hoped.

For example 
Self harm, mental health

As someone who is recovering it caught me off guard. But I will say it is better handled than some other books, in which I had to take breaks so I don’t have a mental breakdown
