Wow I don’t know what to say really.

I think that most people rating this book have judged it based on the author’s hoax at claiming this was a true story but if you ignore all that mess, what you find here is a weird, heart breaking and, at times, hilarious novel.

I wasn’t sure why I decided to request this from Netgalley because it’s the sort of book I’d normally steer clear of, but I’m glad I left my comfort zone to read this. It was different for me. I enjoyed it enough but it was also a bit depressing and the story feels like only a snippet of a bigger story we’re not part of.

Sarah will take you through every single emotion you can possibly think of, from love to terror to hope and you’ll find yourself a bit lost once it’s all over.

Buy it here!

Thanks to Netgalley and Little Brown Book Group UK for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.
