My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book! All the feels! There were moments reading it when I felt Eden’s pain/terror/regret/anger so strongly, it was like being right by her side. Her teenage experiences felt real and honest. In a way, this book was a window that allowed me to understand why teenagers act out about seemingly silly things–chores, for instance.
This book shares such an important message. That’s it’s never too late to change your mind. That you have the right to change your mind. That not saying anything doesn’t mean you’ve decided.
And the writing! The writing was powerful and gorgeous. An exceptional debut by a very talented author.
