's review

it was ok
bookshelves: arcs, bipoc, contemporary

where i truly hoped i'd leave this book with tears accompanying my cheeks, i instead ended up sitting there with exactly one thing going through my head: hmmmmm.


the message gets a 10/10 from me. it's just that the execution didn't work out in my opinion, since i barely connected with the main character. not because of what she's going through, but because of what she's going through isn't developed well enough. it had so much potential but the pacing and lack of actual depth ruined it a bit for me.

nevertheless an important topic and message, but the book didn't live up to my expectations.

if you're interested on reading my full review on my blog (where i also linked to some own-voices reviewers), click here!

thank you to the publisher for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review! this did not affect my opinions in any way.
