DNF @ 5%
It's not you, it's me. 5% of a book is hardly anything to judge a book by, but I found the narrative style and voice of the book infuriating to read. And I am so sad about it because I was was really excited to read this book!

I set it aside a couple of days ago to read something else. I decided to pick it back up tonight and couldn't even make it past this page. Everything is explained in excruciating detail, the minutiae of each character and their backstory is dumped on the reader.

I learned very little of consequence other than I had no desire to force myself to read this book when it's obvious the narrative style and I don't jive. The book does have a racially diverse cast of characters though, and I am sure many people will love this one!

eARC was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review (obviously). Screenshot is taken from an uncorrected proof and is subject to change upon publication (one can hope).
