Gripping, compelling and brought me back to the time of her passing. The (anti-)heroine is empathetic. I imagined myself in her position, like in the crucial scene on pg. 132, I thought through different escape scenarios and landed on the one she [Lou] eventually went with. I was shocked and a bit pleased that she picked the same choice I chose. The descriptions of French locales make me want to visit. I'd suggest this someone who likes books about Diana.
