I loved this book!

Review by Hanah

The book is written in a way that it is really easy to read and the storyline is interesting and it keeps you wanting to know more. There is nothing I can say that I didn't like about the book! I think people who enjoy poetry, science fiction and pure relatable writing would enjoy this book.
