Genre: Young Adult, Fiction, Historical, Realistic
Length: 8h 55m
This book is good in it’s own way. However, I do feel like the story was kind of rushed or jumbled so to speak. This book 100% dives into some deep topics that should be talked about, but sometimes the story seemed to be all over the place. Almost as if the book was slightly rushed.
Ashley was easily and unlikable character. She seemed to not care about anything that was going on and acted as if it wasn’t going to impact her. However, I do feel there is a lot to learn, just from her character alone.
This book is heavy on the social issues and it’s something that I will always believe needs to be talked about. This is a good debut book, regardless of the things I didn’t like about it. I would definitely recommend it as it is a quick read as well.
