“The Winner’s Curse is when you come out on top of the bid, but only by paying a steep price.”

I put off reading this book for a while, and as soon as I was a few chapters in I regretted waiting so long. The plot is unlike anything I've ever read. The story is unique and fills the reader with so many feeling. I felt so scared, but so much hope. I felt empathy, then too much disgust. The juxtaposed feelings were completely unexpected, and really helped make this book for me.

The pier scene blew me away. It really showcases what people who are in love will do for one another. It doesn't matter the circumstances, or any change of events; love will make people do things they never thought they'd be able to do. This really is the underlining theme for this whole book, but the pier scene was the pinnacle moment that broke my heart and then proceeded to mend it.
