his book is an eye-opener! Talking about your feelings after just finishing this book is not easy. Thanks to the awesome writing-style by Nicky Crawford, building up a connection to the story itself but also to its characters is surprisingly easy. The key to it? Definelty all these emotions that make this story so special. For me the most important thing about reading a book is when after finishing the book, I still can’t stop thinking about it. Thinking about what the characters might do thinking about what could have been different if the characters would have made different decisions. This was definetly the case with this book! In my opinion this is not only a “book”, it’s this special kind of book that you will remember even after reading a lot of other awesome books. Because there is still a difference between an awesome book and a book like this one. Thanks for giving us the chance to read the ARC, Nicky Crawford.
