The characters, such as Eva, that Simpson has created have organic chemistry with one another that allows readers to fall wholeheartedly without fear into their world of mystery, of shadows, of the battle of good versus evil. Readers will root for Eva, Liv, and Al as they delve deeper into the mystery catalyzed by Eva's grandmother Mary's passing (at over a hundred years old!). As Mary's teenage years unfold through the pages of the journals, Eva's own life will change in ways most unexpected. Parallels will be drawn in thin arcs of light between the past and the present, beckoning readers to continue at their own risk.
If you're like me and into eloquently written, queer-normative fiction that combines the fantastic and the realism of the world around us while simultaneously giving readers a romantic side plot and a main character that isn't neurotypical that doesn't detract from the wonderfully addictive driving force behind the main story line, then this is the book for you.
Edit: I love it so much, now that I'm teaching at a high school I specially ordered a physical copy to lend students.
From the vast and numerous descriptors that utterly draw you in, to the accurate depiction of a girl surviving depression while not making it the focal point of the story, this one definitely deserves a 10/10 rating.
