"This book was good, but not great. I really enjoyed the premise of the story and it started off pretty strong. At times it began to go from mature young adult to more juvenile. Some of the drama and action fell flat in the second half of the story. I am debating on if I will read the next book in the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.75 "
"I loved this book and can’t wait for the next installment! I loved the character development that the main character went through and I love that we got to see her journey to heal from trauma."
