“There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door.”
🌟 This series simply keep getting better and that is always a good thing although keeping this progression may be hard. My favorite introduction was the one for the 2nd book but this had a good intro nonetheless.
🌟 This takes place after the first book so it is a continuation of the story, but the main character is not Nancy this time and it was the other characters from book one in addition to a couple of new characters. The good thing regarding the characters is the Diversity in this series, there is an asexual character, a fat one (Although she was so focused on her weight while others were not! a bit annoying honestly), transgenders and bonus points for the Hijabi character!
🌟 Mix the wonderful writing style with the ability to discuss and tackle many real problems that authors may not want to write about and you will have a great script, which McGuire has been doing since the first book in the series!
“That’s why people shouldn’t get too hung up on labels. Sometimes I think that’s part of what we do wrong. We try to make things make sense, even when they’re never going to.”
🌟 This was a bit more interesting than the second book plot wise as was expected, because this carried the story forward rather than being a prequel. And the pacing was perfect as always.
🌟 After keeping up with the series now, I totally get why it has all this hype and I think it deserves even more attention. Final Rating is 4 stars.
🌟 Prescription: For fans of Diversity reads, specially short and fast (yet interesting) ones!
