it was amazing

From the author of the Alice series comes a fun, but heartbreaking stand-alone story, with two realistic main characters with not-so-great pasts and not much better presents. Told through both Alex and Cleo's perspective, the reader really gets a sense of both of these characters. The voices are very different from each other and are very believable. But it's not only the main characters that get screen time, the side characters, particularly Alex's aunt Grace and sisters May and Maggie, as well as Cleo's friend Phillipa are also extremely fun to read about as well. The novel is also filled with Juby's trademark humor and clever, subtle ways of showing that humor. Another highly recommended read (especially as it seems like people are wanting to ban it, so you know it's a great novel, hee!)
