Or edit :) Sometimes a brain is worn out and needs a little break.

Maybe a 4.5/4.75 but read it in 24 hours so it's getting bumped up to a 5. Great characters, great setting, great writing/craft, great story.

“August September A Year Later 279 305 315 “One of the secrets of life is to be honestly who you are. Who others want you to be, who you used to be, or who you may someday become . . . these are fantasies. To be honestly who you are is to give up your illusions and face today with courage.” – Bill Purdin”
