This book was a really fun and light read! I didn't find the twist all that shocking, but I also didn't entirely expect it. It kept me engaged the entire time and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

It was difficult to read about Ava's autistic coded son, Henri, at times. I don't think Chen handled it poorly, but the ableism from family members and the lack of support was hard to witness as an autistic person.
