This book is so special.
It’s dark and sad and honestly? Sometimes I felt like I had the world on my shoulders, reading this. But it was so absolutely necessary. It dealt with heavy subjects in a way that didn’t feel manipulative or forced, and I feel like I NEEDED to read this book to understand a little bit more of the world.
There were too many unanswered questions by the time the book ended, but at the same time, there was a satisfying conclusion. Without giving out spoilers: the ending felt like something that would happen in real life. Not perfect, not faultless, but full of the complexities of human life.
I love Leonard Peacock and truthfully, while reading the book, I just wanted to hug him and tell him that everything would be okay (even though he would completely shun me for doing that).
