“When she finally got smart and found a stick thin enough to wedge in and push the paper out, she discovered it was not an envelope at al but a folded receipt from May that listed one Coke and one Big League Chew.” -32%. 💚

This book was about 2 families and how one charged event changes those 2 families and how those repercussions play out over time. It is definitely a slow burning novel that is character driven and my struggle with it was definitely that I did not connect with the characters. With such an impactful premise, I was hoping to feel some emotions about the characters or the story but it fell really flat for me. The second half of the book did pick up a bit but I felt it was a little too neatly tied up… but at least it was more interesting. I think I’m definitely in the minority on this one- most of the reviews for this have been glowing so check it out for yourself , for sure! 💚

  1. This was my thoughts exactly! I just posted a review aswell. More or less thought the characters were not developed well enough

  2. I really loved this one, but I can see it being a struggle to connect to the characters- they definitely weren’t the most likable people.
