A very solid debut. There is a lot of character in the plot, the sadness did seem to dominate the beginning. So glad that Skylar was the star and narrator.

I received this book from a goodreads giveaway.

At times the writing was very, very good, at other times, it felt forced and mediocre. I also thought there were times when too many extraneous details were given that didn't e
