4,5/5 stars

This was so good and well written, the story and the characters felt so real to me, I’m really emotional right now and I don’t actually have the right words to describe how I feel at this moment

“You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it. You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick. You're the storyteller and the story told. You are somebody's something, but you are also your you.”
