In a time of a lot of performative and rushed activism, this book was a really good interrogation of what activism actually means for you. The main character explores who she is and who she wants to be in the world, finding meaning radical acception of herself and working from there. Overall it was a really refreshing message.

The book started really good, but in the end it somehow felt a bit flat for me. It’s a great summer read nonetheless! It’s a story about finding yourself amongst everything!
