I absolutely LOVED this novel! It was one of my most anticipated releases of this year and it did not at all disappoint. Clayton's writing style was one-of-a-kind and I am so excited to continue the series purely for that reason. However, I did find that the story look a little while to get very interesting. However, once it did, I could not put it down! I was entranced by the world and characters developed by the author and was quite inspired by the characters' perseverance. However, please be aware that there is a sexual assault trigger. Also, there is fat shaming, LGBTQ+ negative depictions, and negative beauty standards-- although this seems to be common within novels like this. Overall, though, this was still a solid 4-star read.
