i enjoyed how easy to read the book was, and was having an enjoyable time up until about half way through. i think the book should come with content warnings for manipulative relationships and seems to gloss over the seriousness of them, still painting Kit to be the heartthrob we thought he was. I thought the ending was unnecessary and only used for a shock factor. It made me dislike my favourite character and the
Spoiler adult/child relationship
was glossed over in seriousness. I thought the portrayal of the clearly autistic character could have been done much better and didn’t have to follow so many stereotypes.
