I felt like the book took a while to read even though it took me not even an hour to finish it. I felt like some of the writing was odd.. there was a lot of ands. But the plot was intriguing it just felt slow overall.

Thank you NetGalley, publisher, and author for providing me this book in exchange for an honest review.

First of all, not gonna lie it is very hard to get through this book. First few chapters are starting with a bunch of character introduction all at once. I get so confused how to separate the characters; I am not attached to any of the characters, To be honest, it just confuse me and delaying me to read any further.

As I read more, I know how important the message this book trying to say. All of Virginia's awful experience she had. The abuse and doubt that happened to her. It feels like it's on my own skin. The things Virginia's experienced often times described so graphic that I always have a need to take a break, The mythology retelling with singy-songy writings. I like that in the end she knew she had to do something and there are people who doesn't dismiss who she is.

The ending is something I don't very much enjoyed. But everyone happy and found what they've been longing and that's all matter I guess.. I still like this book but I don't think I would re-read it because it triggers me.
