A quick, enjoyable read, hard to put down, but also packed with themes that will have me thinking for a long time to come. Touches on child abandonment, alcoholism, gender dysphoria, sexual orientation, feminism, family pressure, and more. Diverse cast, and good character development for such a short book. Tied up a bit neatly in the end, but enjoyed it enough that I would read a sequel or a spin-off book in a heartbeat. Ms. Spotswood, if you're listening, I see a lot of potential with bestie Claire or Ivy's sister Iz!

I found this while searching for the story by Hans Christian Anderson. Sounded interesting so I checked it out.😳 This story features language, explicit scenes, and mature themes. Could have been done without all the above. The basic plot sounded good, from there....not to my taste.

I found the main character very relatable. She's feels like she doesn't have any talents and she wants to please everyone. We have all been there.
