I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by S.A. Hartman. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
This was a very well written book that inspired me to contemplate many of my thoughts I’ve thrown out due to society’s standards. I loved the narration as well. I will be doing a more in-depth read through before giving it a full review.
