I loved this book for the same reasons I love Mccade's book 'over and over again'. It gives you a serious case of the feels. It was far shorter than I expected but still rich in humanity and connection.

Slender. Angry. (Part) Asian.

Yeah, that about sums me up.

Hi. I’m Cole. Xen. Whatever you want to call me; both are true, and both are lies. My pen names are multitudes, my nicknames legion.
