"Very interesting and page turning book"
""Coming to this school was like starting a wildfire that immediately raged out of control. Not to mention that I remind people of the past in the worst possible ways." Mystery novels ususally take me out of my comfort zone & I like how this one surprised me. Unexpectedly & thankfully there was no Chosen One trope;I liked how the MC was forced out of her comfoet zone, discovered & conquered new limits, and saw herself in a whole new light with each chapter. The characters overall were nothing short of enigmatic. November herself was very relatable, I experienced her perspective on a personal level. This was a thrilling mission & I enjoyed it immensely💖🖤💖"
