I have mixed opinions on this book. I began reading it thanks to booktok, but found it a chore to read. I ended up leaving it down about 3/8 of the way through; but I decided to bring it with me on a train journey. About halfway through, I was captivated. I loved
Spoiler Bronwyn and Nates relationship
and Nate was my favourite character. Overall, I think it was a great book, with fantastic writing; and that my troubles at the start were less about the book and more about my own focus levels at the time!
