This book is beautifully written and resonates with me in so many ways. I first read eighteen years a year or two ago and was incredibly blown away by not only how beautiful it is, but by how relatable and thought provoking it is. When I found out Madisen Kuhn was releasing another book, I was incre...see moreof the reviewer's review
