If a life of fear isn’t worth living, then why should I carry on?
I'll admit it. I was very wrong about my predictions of the plot twists... So kudos to Lauren James for managing to fool me, and kudos to myself for coming up with a better one lol (specifics about my theory come later in this review).
I absolutely loved the way Romy's character was portrayed in this novel, especially her battles with anxiety and intrusive thoughts. While it is never explicitly stated that
I went into this book with the absolute highest of expectations, and what I got was not really what I was expecting. I know, I know, that's completely my own fault, but that doesn't change my feelings. I was utterly addicted to this book, but overall it just didn't quite meet/match what I expected it to be.

It took me a long time to read this book, but NOT because I wasn't enjoying it. There are two reasons why this took me a while to read:

2. I wanted to savor every moment of this story.
I listened to this book on audio and oh my god, was it good. I think this might be my favorite audiobook of all time-- it might even beat the Illuminae Files audiobooks. I honestly don't know how I would have felt about this book if it weren't for the audio. The n
