*I honestly don't remember if I was requested to review this, or if I just bought it because I'm a major fangirl. Either way, here's a review!*
Oh. Oh wow. Okay, so I am already a HUGE fan of ML Sparrow, but this one kicked it up a notch. Beautiful storytelling, as is usual for her, this book centered on well developed characters set in the middle of a real life tragedy. It went from normal teenage dramas from daily life, to tragedy striking without warning. And the emotions that Taiyo went through felt really real and genuine, and OMG I just don't even know what else to say. I cried a little, my heart stopped a little, this is just amazing, and I recommend it to literally anyone that likes to read at all. So well done!
