My ThoughtsThis book felt like a slow burn book where I found the first part of the book to be slow and didn’t really grip me.I am so happy I carried on as the end parts of the book really made up for it. I see so much that really made me want the book to carry on just that littl bit longer.The characters were okay and rachel near the end was the one whom I liked and found was best designed. Definitely an author I would read again.
