At its heart, this psychological thriller centers around the humanity of a young woman unsure of where to turn and whom to trust.
This girl went through so much. Her story is told in such a way that I was mesmerized from the beginning. The timing of the post-pandemic recovery with her own experiences before and after returning home was just right. A must read for fans of intelligent science fiction.
The book really captures the angst and feel of being a teenaged girl, while layering on some unique generational issues. It provides for a wide-angle lens on today’s youth and Gen X. A fun and sometimes harrowing read.
