I like this one fine, but I lost my momentum and can't get it back. This isn't the sort of book to put down and pick up again.

Hope to try again at a later date.

Kalen is starting Milkman: ...having been brought up in a hair-trigger society where the ground rules were--if no physically violent touch was being laid upon you, and no outright verbal insults were being leveled at you, and no taunting looks in the vicinity either, then nothing was happening, so how could you be under attack from something that wasn't there? At eighteen I had no proper understanding of the ways that constituted encroachment.
