3.5 stars, rounding up for THAT ENDING

Yeah, so I really loved the end of the book. (Can you tell?) It really made the whole thing work for me.

This is a good look at toxic masculinity (soooo toxic) and violence begetting violence and thinking about when and how to break the cycle of violence and also seeing how toxic masculinity can make breaking that cycle seem impossible. Because there are rules, see?
