challenging dark emotional hopeful informative reflective sad slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


This book fucking crushed me. You grow to both love and loathe the characters but you have so much compassion and empathy for them as well. Just a heartbreaking story about some very real, raw, emotional stories and peopleĀ
