Jeannette strikes the perfect balance between portraying her childhood innocence while reflecting on how impactful her abuse and trauma was as a child. She goes into detail about hard topics and brings inquisitive and funny insights into her life. The story telling makes this book impossible to put down and the topics make it hard to keep going. One of the best books I've read.
The characters were so lovable and had me rooting for them from the beginning. I loved the pacing of the story and how storylines intertwined. My only draw back is the way some of the dialogue is written. It was distracting at times and wasn't consistent. Easily overlooked though with the quality of the story!
The language and scene building were great, but the mystery was so slow and the resolution wasn't satisfying. I never felt like I was figuring it out with the characters. Could have been a good love story, but not a good mystery.
