You know why? Because I enjoyed the shit out of this book.
You want a detailed breakdown of what happens in it?
You want me to tell you how fucking gloriously understated yet wholly satisfying this world building was?
You want to know why I started losing my mind 70% in?

This book is everything that makes me keep coming back to the YA category. Because sometimes, sometimes an author does it right. Kaufman and Spooner did it right. They did it sooooooo right. This book was a not only refreshingly original, but filled with all sorts of delicious mind-fuckery.
