This reminded me so much of The Weight of Feathers. It has a similar Romeo and Juliet theme.
I had the author on my radar ever since I read her debut novel the love that split the world. I was really impressed with her writting and I couldn't wait to read her next story.
"A Million Junes" prooved to be everything I was expecting from the author. It is heavier on the magical realism but that didn't bother me at all. EH creates a magical world, a place blessed by the Gods, a heaven on earth. But people with their actions turned it into hell and our heroine tries to save herself and her family from this curse.
I loved all the characters in the story, June's parents and siblings, her BFF Hannah, Saul and his cousin Nate, they all are solid, with their own purpose in the story.

If you have a taste for magical realism, I would recommend this book to you, it worths your time.

The magic man who could talk roots into spreading.
The haunted man who ran from the people he loved.
My father, the sun, who warmed everything he touched. Who fought for us and for his place in the world."
