a while ago i wrote a review on letterboxd for the movie A Fantastic Woman that said: "painful from my head to my toes. i'm still uncertain as to if i think cinema making you This uncomfortable is productive or not... we'll see"

i feel almost the same about this book. there is a lot of suffering, suffering i know happens in real life. we do get some development after all, and it ends on a hopeful note, but my stomach is still turning. don't know how to feel about it yet.
