Review

This book was an absolute HOOT. I loved Ever from the get go, and she gets into such shenanigans. I loved getting to know Ever and her gang so much.

Sophie was definitely one of my favorites — is it because she and I share a name? Possibly. But it’s more than just that. She seems like an easy read from the surface, but there’s a depth once you get to know her more.

I love how the characters are written and the setting of the whole novel. I think Wen really captured the experience well.
