This is one of those books that will stay with you after you'vee read it. I felt deeply invested in the characters. The pace of the book keeps the reader engaged. Emotionally complicated and deeply affecting.

This book was so good. I finished it in a day. Told in second person, it's a love letter about all the ways that love can win and lose and change and make you feel whole and small at the same time. Pick it up!
