This book was all in all a lovely story about love, the depths desperation can take us to, all the ways you can leave your mark on the world, and the beauty of living life even if it’s one riddled with loss, all wrapped up in a clever game of cat and one particular mouse full of stubborn hope. Overall I left this book liking it. However, I found Addie’s narrative a little slow in the beginning and tough to find substance in the repetition. (this may be intentional to reflect the repetitive nature of a life of exclusively beginnings but it was hard for me to engage with it) I adored Henry and their story together. I also really did enjoy the theme of how important it is for everyone to feel truly known and accepted for exactly who they are. And by the end of the book I was pleasantly surprised. But I came in with high expectations I’m not sure this book met. 7/10
