There's nothing really wrong with this book. I just didn't really like the style all that much. It felt a little bland, and maybe that's just because the heroine was numbed from her grief but I'm not quite sure it was, because even the more emotionally intense scenes rang a little hollow for me. I think it was just a stylistic incompatibility. It's compared to Emily X.R. Pan and John Green's works and I don't really care for either of those authors because I find them both bland and kind of obnoxiously twee and precocious, so maybe that's the issue.
I did love the author's note at the back of the book and recommend reading it, as it puts the work in perspective. For the right person, this will be a work of solace and comfort. It just wasn't that book for me.
Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!
2 to 2.5 out of 5 stars
