Overall Enjoyed It, But Would Have Liked A Bit More Explanation

The real rating for this book is about a 3.5/5.

It's nice to see mental health rep in a YA novel especially where the prose is gorgeous. However, I didn't get lost in this book as much as I would have liked to. The narrative is meant to reflect Grace's disassociation from reality as she deals with the loss of her father and her previous friend group abandoning her, but sometimes a lot of details got muddled in the jumping around/alternating between past and present. Like the ending which was supposed to tie things together left me grabbing some pieces, but not all of them.

There is a lot that this book does offer: complex family life, a really sweet friendship from both a grandmother and her grandson, learning how to heal, etc, but the narrative style just didn't work for me
