Indagare sulla misteriosa scomparsa del miliardario Russell Pickett non rientrava certo tra i piani della sedicenne Aza, ma in gioco c'è una ricompensa di centomila dollari e Daisy, Miglior e Più Intrepida Amica da sempre, è decisa a non farsela scappare. Punto di partenza delle indagini diventa il figlio di Pickett, Davis, che Aza un tempo conosceva ma che, pur abitando a una manciata di chilometri, è incastrato in una vita lontana anni luce dalla sua. E incastrata in fondo si sente anche Aza, che cerca con tutte le forze di essere una buona figlia, una buona amica, una buona studentessa e di venire a patti con le spire ogni giorno più strette dei suoi pensieri.

“You’re deflecting.” I just stared at her. “You’re right that self isn’t simple, Aza. Maybe it’s not even singular. Self is a plurality, but pluralities can also be integrated, right? Think of a rainbow. It’s one arc of light, but also seven differently colored arcs of light.” This is difficult t Leggi tutto
I’ve been having a bad run with YA lately. I’ve loved it for so long that I persevere on, remembering that there are gems, that there are treasures, but increasingly I’ve found myself worried - have I grown out of it? Have I overdone it? Each novel seems to be repeating some unspoken pattern, or at Leggi tutto

Even though I just finished this book, I already know it's one that will stick with me for years to come. I can't fully express how cathartic this book was. I finally saw parts of myself represented in a novel - the parts that I was ashamed of and pretended didn't exist. This is by far my favorite J Leggi tutto
My review is now up if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/T3t7Fhh2oiM I’m speechless. It’s stunning.
2 Stars...and that's me being generous. This book was, well...not good. I went into this with somewhat high hopes. I knew it was about a girl with anxiety issues and - as someone who struggled with a lot of anxiety as a hormone-ridden, depressed teen who lost a parent at a young age myself, (much like Leggi tutto
This was ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT and also gave me an existential crisis so thanks for that. I'm actually floored by how good it was. I mean, I haven't read a "new" John Green novel in forever, but this is worth the wait. I wasn't actually nervous going in. It's about mental health (#OWNVOICES I REMIND
4.5 STARS I REALLY REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. If I leave this review blank for now, I may force myself to film a video review (which I really want to do!) hahah
