Fave Character: The Girl’s Grandmother
What I Think: A novel that encapsulates the tumultuous journey that is sisterhood while taking you through the stages of grief with sisters Olivia and Jazz after the death of their mother. The most emotional and vulnerable moments of the sisters and the people they meet along the way as well as the wonder of unanswered questions put this novel a cut above the rest. At times, the story was slow and uneventful but Walsh’s rich writing and clever plot twist made up for it in the end.
+ Olivia and Hobbs interactions
— Jazz’s relentless cynicism and their grandfather Orin 😦
Long Story Short: 7/10
