Mind-bending, weird, messy, and intriguing. It pulls you in and doesn't let go until the last page. Lies? Truths? What the hell is happening here?

I devoured this book. Unique in story and form, it is a poetic tribute to grief and love. I will be recommending this to everyone.

Achingly beautiful, unputdownable story about three strong, triumphant women. I cried, of course. But in a good way.

A book that makes you feel like a kid again, reading by flashlight under the covers deep into a summer night. The story, the characters, the setting and the writing were all a reader’s dream come true.

I laughed, I cried and felt so moved! After reading this I can honestly say it is now one of my all time favorite romance novels.
