✧✧✧/5

At last! I was anticipating the next book after reading My Lady Jane so this one was a high priority on my TBR list. I more than nabbed it right away when I opened up the delightful box Harper Collins kindly sent (I technically hoarded it right away and didn’t allow anyone else to set their eyes upon it. Perks of the job I suppose.)

(Warning: This review may contain some spoilers)

Attention readers, this is a book that you should read in 2018. It has its faults but a good chunk of it relays an important message and portrays a perturbing look at the prevalence of racism, Islamophobia, and hate crime.

(Warning: This review may contain some spoilers)

I was expecting Adam Silvera’s latest novel to give me all the feels like History is All You Left Me did, but I found myself speed reading through portions of this dialogue heavy story to get to the end instead. It wasn’t that it was horribly written or didn’t cover a heavy topic well enough; it was more so I was bored and I wanted to know how they both die at the end.

Let’s just say it wasn’t all bad, but it also wasn’t all good.

I wanted to be gutted by the end of the story, and I wanted to care deeply enough for these characters that I dread their untimely demise; however, I was more so excited and waiting for their deaths to happen.
