Hai Beautiful! I love a good coming-of-age novel! This was the most fun I’ve had reading a young adult contemporary in a long time. It was raw with feeling, emotion and youthful ignorance.

I love to hear the thoughts/ feelings of the characters as they experience the event, learning that they truly are the only ones left. Breaking free of the lies they’ve been brought up to believe and just facing the fact that everything might one day die, decay, fall apart and eventually cease to exist. How far would […]

I’ve never read a book about an aro-ace character and I have been so conditioned to expect a romance in just about every novel I pick up, it’s refreshing to know that this one will have a different […]
