…In addition to everything (excellent characters, writing, pacing, romance), one thing worth calling out is the exploration of family relationships, both of blood and of choice. Josie and Kesa’s relationship is as fraught as Paz and Shannon’s is positive. Kallmaker does a great job interrogating these dynamics and showing how positive growth can still happen at any age and/or stage in a relationship… I can’t talk about my favourite aspect of the book without blowing a massive spoiler. Just know that it’s SO GOOD. Read the entire review.
