My Thoughts – After hearing a lot of hype about this book, I decided to give it a go. This is a coming of age story which reflects on topics such as race, background, wealth and relationships. The writing style is really unique and made me read more and more. Quick sentences and even quicker chapters, although I know this isn't for everyone. The events left me shocked and shows how life can seem pretty good on the outside, but you know something's not right and you have to keep reading to find out. For me, the last part of the story made it for me, you are left guessing what has happened to the main character and it all becomes clear nearer the end. I feel like I should read this again and really appreciate the earlier part of the story more, before the plot unravels itself. I also really liked the way the author used fairy tales to describe the story. It's worth a read, don't let anyone spoil it for you.
My Rating - 4/5
