Teri Erickson 3 Stars from me. I didn’t love it I didn’t hate it. I didn’t really care for the main characters but I liked the writing style and the open mindedness of the main topic. I thought it was well written in that aspect, where both sides were explained well.

Olivia Rey 4 🌟 for me. I enjoyed the pace, mystery and intriguing subject. The setting was by far my favorite thing about the book! I loved the fact that it was a book in translation and they they discussed travel and actually had to move around in the story. 😊
