This book was very twisty and turny with an unreliable narrator and is very hard to review because I don't want to give anything away and I'm afraid many people will, by tags and such, which is a shame. I'm so glad I read it right away.
I can't stop thinking about this story, it is written at times like poetry, as a diary and as just rambling but beauty throughout. It is so unique and hard to describe and I would highly recommend reading it soon before the spoilers are out there.
There were times I thought I had it figured out then the author would change my mind only to be partly right later on.
I read this book in 2 days and it has been a long time since a book has grabbed me that fast in a long time. Once I started all I wanted to do was keep reading. And when I was done I just wanted to start it over again.
I would recommend this to adult and young adult alike this book defies classification it just needs to be read.
If they make a movie of this one Edward Hermann must play granddad. I pictured him all the way through.
If you like a book that keeps you guessing, give this one a try. And Please Don’t Spoil it for others!
I don’t want to say anymore for fear of giving something away but I loved this book!
