My Review

This book wrecked me. It was so beautiful and dark, and wonderful and haunting.

This will be a short because you should go into this blind. It's the only way to go into it.

The writing is wonderful. The tone is dark, and haunting, and hazy. The narration is creepy, using this 'we' that I was never sure of. I didn't trust Cadence, but It made me like the story more.

Don't try to figure it out. It's better that way.

Overall, this book gave me shivers. It was so beautiful and incredible. Please read this.

5/5 stars.

And when you read it, if anyone asks you how it ends? Just lie.
