Fun, quick read -- a little too much going on to treat any of it with much depth/seriousness.

This book was interesting in the sense that when I started it, my life was rather boring and I found the book a bit boring. By the time I finished it, my life was a lot busier and suddenly the book was a delight to read - just going to show how our perception of a book is so personal and variable. As for the book itself, I enjoyed the narrative from multiple character's perspectives, but at times it felt a bit too disjointed, with some characters only narrating a chapter or two. The story was light but handled some important and overarching themes, such as acceptance, identity, and family.
