For who is this book for ?
This novel is perfect for young adults who are interested in LGBTQ+ stories, tales of forbidden love, and novels with a bit of mystery and suspense.
- The characters are well-developed and relatable.
- The plot is exciting and unpredictable.
- The LGBTQ+ representation is accurate and sensitively handled.
- The love story between the two main characters is a little too cliche
- The book feels like it’s trying to hard to be queer and LGBTQ+ friendly
- The plot moves a bit too slowly for my taste
