Wow, this is my first time reading Emezi's writing and I found it incredible.

The audi is read by one of my favorite narrators, Bahru Turpin🤍🤍🤍

I did not read the synopsis upon starting and was surprised to learn that the Mc's name is bitter😂😭 poor thing....

I enjoyed this unique piece and that Bitter has the  magical artistic ability to bring her drawings to life, which is AWESOME!!! 

Bitter is a relatable character and genuinely needed to get their frustration out. But there is always a plot twist and sometimes your creation has a mind of its own🔮
