One of the oddest books I’ve ever read. True? True.
I cannot believe – blows my mind – that I just read that book.
Amber Appleton is the most cheerful, chipper, perkiest human being on the face of this earth. The first few chapters were unbearable. I thought I’d been tricked into reading PollyAnna – The Modern Years. But then it all made sense. And I cried and cried and cried and cried. For at least the last 30% of the book I sobbed and loved it.
I don’t want to tell you anything. Bc the less you know the better. Hang in there when Amber is so cheerful you want to scream. Enjoy the haikus. Respect the Nietzsche (bc who doesn’t?). You have the sweetest, kindest, saddest and most hope-filled ride ahead of you. And it’s wonderful.
Ps – this book can easily be read in one sitting and had some of the most meaningful characters I’ve ever met.
