- Plot- or character-driven? A mix
- Strong character development? Yes
- Loveable characters? Yes
- Diverse cast of characters? Yes
- Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated
I describe this book as Mean Girls meets Jennifer's Body. I thought the art was great, and I enjoyed the characters. I didn't like that
Still, the narrative was fun, and I liked the designs and the story.
Spoilerthe protagonist's love interest ended up being someone who kept making racist microaggressions towards her.
