Recommended to Melanie by: lily ☁️

I loved this so much. This really is a love letter to belonging and seeing all your different parts, and the parts you came from, and exploring those parts and connecting deeper to your culture. This is also a story very much about what it means to be asian american and how sometimes those two parts can make you feel not enough for either half. This was beautiful, and the story was so good, the romance (and love triangle) was everything, and I feel so honored to have read this. <3

Content and Trigger Warnings: abuse (side characters), natural disasters, codependency, depression, drinking, talk of a susicde attempt in the past, racism (always in a negative light and challenged), and the leaking of private pictures.
