"I’m honestly still processing the ending because WHAT?! Such a fantastic book. Very well written. It hooks you in the very beginning. The representation of my culture and the accuracy of some of the conversations were so beautiful to read. The slight plot twist was wild. Jack King is a Short King, and he’s such a fantastic character. I want my future kids to read this book."
