Wow, what a damn good book. When I heard about this book, I was worried that this would be like anotherĀ Stay Gold. Not a bad book, but not one I enjoyed. It crammed too many hard topics in it and then held up themes I strongly disagree with up as a great thing. So, I was happy that this book wasn't like that. It was overall hopeful and happy. Did it have dark and hard themes? Hell yes. But it was handled right and with a very satisfying conclusion.
