There’s a lot to like about this book.
I really enjoyed the way in which the author dealt with each of the various individuals’ approach to dealing with their condition, and how they interacted with each other.
I also felt that the way the relationship between Brodie and Piper developed was one of the real strengths of the story. There was a palpable connection between them, which really drew me in.
That said, there were parts of the overall story where it just felt like I wasn’t getting the whole picture; as if there was something missing.
Overall however, this was, even with that ending, a gratifying read.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
