I loved this so much. Shawn’s writing style really pulls you in. He makes you care about each character. Its really hard for me to say I have loved a book because I have pretty high standards but this book, this author, have made a place in my heart. I have not stopped talking about it to my friends and family. I haven’t stopped thinking about it and will definitely be re-reading often. I definitely recommend
