Stunning, phenomenal, marvelous, amazing, I could go on and on, but I think you all have heard it before. This book is excellent, and I mean it. When I give it 5 stars, I mean every single particle and atom of those stars.
I won’t even try to tell you what is inside these pages, but I have to reassure you, it’s heartbreaking and beautiful and it’s why I am such a huge fan of contemporary young adult literature. It is what makes me spend my money and my time every time I invest myself in a book, the hope that I find something remotely as good as this.
I just have to applaud the story, and the characters and the gorgeous writing. And the magnificent way in which Katja Millay develops such a complex plot and topics and makes us feel part of it. I refuse to believe this is her first novel, because that would make her not human, I don’t think you can possess that kind of talent and still call yourself a simple human.
It’s been a while since I went through so many emotions in just one book. I had to remove myself from the scrutiny of other people’s stares because I was a wreck, it was getting to the point I was starting to wonder if maybe I was too invested, but I had reached the no-turning-back point so I just let myself go.
This book is so good I’m sure the other books pick on it and call it names. I had to stop reading and take a minute so my breathing could get back to normal. That’s how good it was, it gave me idiopathic tachycardia, except it wasn’t idiopathic because Josh Bennet and Nastya caused it.
I have to confess though, the angst reached places your mind and my mind can’t comprehend, so I had to take breaks to pull my head together. But I can’t deny I adored every single minute of it.
