  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot

  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I was going to give this three stars but the ending was just...so expected, and so trite, and just.....I don't know, too wrapped up in a neat bow and sappy. Idk. Also... I'm not sure the author knew Kari was an alcoholic. Drug use is heavily discussed, as is alcoholism, and critiqued, and recovery is talked about, and relapsing. But I'm genuinely unsure if the author knows Kari is an alcoholic. The author definitely doesn't know they wrote a lesbian.

Anyway, cool premise, glad I read it, wish I had better things to say.
