4.25/5 stars! This was such a well-written collection of stories. I felt like I was learning something new and expanding my understanding of humans, culture, and the world with every step. It didn't hurt that the cover was eye-catching and drew me in immediately. It was not surprising that author Andrew Chatora has extensive experience writing strong books. I was constantly challenging my existing ideals and growing in my empathy towards the individuals who are set up for failure by corrupt and oppressive systems. There were times within the book that the stories were overwhelmingly heavy and I had to take a step back and pause from continuing. However, that is the reality of the world and in the real world, affected individuals don't have the option to pause or step back from atrocities. A good and insightful read that everyone should add to their list.
