's review

it was amazing

So let's get this out of the way. One of the worst lines I have ever read in a novel resides in this book. It is:
"Akhmed's head hummed with the shock of how not shocked he was."

Yep. That's there.

Thankfully, that was the outlier. The story of this book started like a slow boil, and became so enchanting that by the end, I couldn't wait to read it. I still can't think of those last few pages without crying, and I'm still affected by it a week later.

Best dollar store purchase yet.
