This was a book I could not wait to read and unfortunately, I did not like it as much as I thought I would. The author wrote one of my favorite books, I’ll give you the sun. So I went into it expecting to enjoy reading it. That is not what happened I could not really get into the novel and I struggled to get through it. I could not connect with Lennie, the main character at all.
Not connecting to the main character makes reading it harder and I think that was what made me take so long getting through it. The romance felt off to me and some of those scenes I had to skip.
I had high hopes based on the summary and the plot. It sounded like a really hard-hitting contemporary which is what I enjoy reading. Ultimately I was disappointed but I might try re-reading it to see if my rating changes at all.
