this is an important story for someone, i can already feel it. somebody will see themselves in this book, in the characters, and feel seen and at home. that’s something incredibly special, and although i had personal gripes with the pacing, i still cried several times and i still believe this is a solid debut and i’m excited to see it exist in our world.
