- Loveable characters? Yes
The first half of the book had me wondering why I was reading this book instead of just scrolling Instagram. I have been taking a break from social media, so it felt irritating to read. I have been pulling away from how much time in a day I offer to social media. In the end... this book resonated beautifully. I thought I would trade it; when I finished it, I decided I will keep it. It is a perfect portrayal of our lives in social media, and what pulls us back into the real world. My favorite quote from near the beginning of the book, “Your attention is holy, it is your soul spending itself.”
Moderate: Child death and Terminal illness
Minor: Abortion and Police brutality
It is written beautifully and with honor and love.
