So, going into this book I knew it was going to be sad because of the title but what I did not expect was the delicate tone of the MC's voice. She is angry and bitter about the hand life has dealt her but she never loses that vulnerability that children have and I love that about her. Even when she is acting like a monster your heart breaks for her in a very genuine way. The author did a wonderful job with the writing in this book and it felt very real for me. We really are just moments in life that randomly meet and interact. One minute we're here and the next we could be gone.
