By Delia Owens | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3 out of 5 stars)
This book is amazingly plotted and thought of, but I must say that it was difficult to read and to finish in that sense. The book is relatable for people who are different and for those who want to be comfortable with their difference, Kya is the proof of such–that it is okay to be non-conformist, in a different world, but still be at peace in your own right–to also love and be loved in return.
But, like our lives should flow, it will not be perfect. There will be betrayals along the way. And sometimes, there will be times that we would do it alone. We might not get what we want all the time, but we’ll surely get what we need. Don’t hesitate to raise the bar high.
We cannot run away from every challenge. Kya faced it all alone, she only has herself as a company but she is sure to want something to change in her life.
You can’t run from every whipstitch. Sometimes you have to discuss things.
Those who listen are rewarded: either warned of predators or alerted to food.
The book has many lessons to teach. Trigger warning: there is a part in the book about rape/sexual assault.
While I found the book difficult to finish, I conquered and the story has a lot of relevance in the modern setup.
