really liked it

GUYS this was such a wonderfully weird book and as soon as I saw this come in at work, I was like "YES THIS IS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY" and I was right!!!!

This story is a puzzle with bits of information from chapters and stunning artwork laid out in front of you for the reader to put together. It's set in a sci-fi apocalyptic world and it's pretty damn epic.

You follow a young girl called Michelle and her yellow robot, Skip. I'm not going to spoil anything but THE ENDING. YOU'LL SEE. BECAUSE YOU SHOULD READ THIS. The pacing of the book is slow but it's one of those rewarding reads where you're like "I'll just read for five minutes" and then you've finished the book at like 3 am screaming "I NEED MORE"

I did find that some of the writing was a little lack lustre but between the overall story line, the illustrations and the world that's created, I fell in love just a little bit. 4 out of 5 stars
