"This book was so good I read it in a day. It's been on my booktok tbr for a while but I never really looked at it because it was hyped to much, but it was kinda worth the hype. I didn't like Day in the beginning, or June, but as the book progressed, I ended up liking the characters very much. That doesn't usually happen unless there are major secrets revealed or character development, but this book was a solid 4.5/5⭐ Would have been 5 stars if there was more character development, but we can't have everything "
"Such an interesting dystopian society book!! I highly recommend for people who enjoy plot twists, murder, or mystery :)"
