You 'll thank me later. ( view spoiler) [ Th book kille me through the heart.
inally:# notinneedofrescueSo, I hear you ask ( much like Maddie, Kitty, and this narrator), why did you only give it four stars? BECAUSE IN THE END ONLY MADDIE REMEMBERS WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT SHIT?!?!?! These girls went through HELL!
Their home tried to ill them, their worst nightmare hunted them through the halls, they got to SEE their homeland but could n't g to it, they were essentially abandoned by the adults that were intende to take care of them, Maddie watched her father sacrifice himself and nearly die, Ceder got her deepest wish just to have it taken away, they worked together, became friends, fought a monster, had massive epiphanies, and resolved to move forward from here and IT ALL GETS TAKEN AWAY!! These amazing moments like the last picture there, where they realize they can save themselves, where they take their lives in their own hands, where they are set to make meaning out of pain and chaos, and they 're all gone.
It made what was otherwise and incredible, flawless book ...
So mediocre it 's ot even .gif-worthy ( and we ll now there 's an amazing .gif opportunity here) .That 's not fair.
They expec to know they made hard choices but they made them right.
They expec to know they defeated a monster.
Ceder deserves to remember what skin felt like.
holy shit what a nove.
