This was difficult at first, as Gus worked through his grief, but it then became a heartfelt story about rebuilding your life after loss and trauma. Gus is wow, but I almost enjoyed Scout more. She had a hard time finding her strength, but it was always there, which made her a fascinating character who showed a lot of growth throughout the story.

I wasn’t sure if I could love this one at first, because it’s a big change from stories that primarily revolved around Bright Side. However, the longer I read it, the more I loved it. Franco is fantastic. This book has a lot of humor and warmth, which was needed after all the tragedy and drama of the previous books.
That’s not to say there is no hardship experienced in this story, because there is. But you leave it feeling refreshed, instead of crushed.
