"I really enjoyed the “found family” friend dynamic in this book. the characters were lovable and intriguing and the story kept me really invested. The last line of the book gave me chills?! That doesn’t happen to me often. I have to know what happens next I’m starting the 2nd book immediately! "
"I really love this book. The main friend group is made up of pretty complex characters who all have their own separate character growth. They all are pretty different from one another, and the conflict between them is a pretty big part of the plot. Yet, you can’t help but understand and fall in love with their group dynamic. There’s romance and found family, and the dialogue is really funny at times. "
