Story: So, I actually won this book years ago in a Goodreads giveaway. I was so happy about it because I just knew that it was a book I’d want to read. I didn’t know a thing about the book. I went purely on the cover of the book and the title. They were both so attention grabbing. I lost many of my books due to a tragic event. Including this book. I never got a chance to read it. So, when I started seeing advertisements of the movie adaptations, I felt like it was a sign. I bought myself and my mother a copy of the book and we read it together in less than a week. It was so good! Way better than I thought it would be. There came to be a certain point in the book that I started seeing signs of what was about to be a big part of the story. Especially the big event.
Characters: Anni is our main character. It takes place in present day and during her high school years when she was just fourteen years old. She’s a new girl to a private school and she finds herself unsure where she fits in. I’m not going to get into more due to the fact that I either share too much or not enough.
Narration: The narrator was really great. She has a lot of talent. I personally think there should have been two narrators for this piece though. Just to help with the aesthetics of the whole thing. One to narrate the adult point of view and the other to narrate the teenager point of view.
Final Thoughts: There were things that I didn’t expect to happen in this book. It’s one of the small down sides of going into books blindly. I had a completely different idea what it was going to be about. I judged the potential main character before I even read the book. I was completely wrong with my judgement. I’m so glad that I finally got around to reading this book. I can’t wait to watch the Netflix adaptation of this!
