An amazing unforgettable tale of the ripple effect of one person's actions across many people's lives. One of the main characters, Em, brought me into her world from the beginning and I could feel myself relating to some of her thoughts and how some things should happen. There is also a tale written by Em within the main story and I felt it was a great way of showing how the character was reflecting on what happened in her life through use of fiction and what she thinks or feels about what should happen with those events and the people involved. There are some heavy themes of sexual assault, sexuality, family structure, actions and their consequences or lack thereof explored in this book and there are definitely some intense moments where the book might have to be closed and a breath taken but it is worth opening that book back up and seeing what happens. This is a great book to use as a way of getting some dialogues going with people and shedding light on some of the dark areas of humanity. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book thanks to BookishFirst and the publishers.
