[4.5 stars] I was caught in a bad time to read when I picked up this book and I quite frankly thought I was entering a reading slump when I was about halfway through. But broooo why does Liz piss me off so baddddddd. The way she just single-handedly tells everyone off for like 3/4th of the book in a "i want to reach into the book and strangle her." Those poor characters did not deserve that but it it's good for character development... HOWEVER, I think this behavior was kinda justified if you really think about it which is slay writing on the writer's part. Liz's journey was sooooo messy and that had me giggling and screaming and punching walls and I appreciate that.

But imagine hating someone for your entire life and thinking that the person also hated you for their entire life and then finding out that they were crushing on you since second grade. Yeah, Wes Bennett >>>
