Really interesting story and characters even if Emmett is my favourite. Sorry Lucian, he just is. The story made me really anxious and full of emotions. So many feelings. I didn’t want to keep reading, I was afraid, but I wanted to see them gaving the happy ending I wanted them to have.
For a moment I forgot about homophobia and when the book was set, and was surprised when Emmett’s sister was acting like an annoying brat, and said hideous things to her brother. I wanted her to just go away, I couldn’t stand her. I get people were more ignorant in the past, but these behaviors just infuriate me like crazy!
I enjoyed the story and liked how the book was divided into three big parts of the story. Then it all came together for the big ending. I liked it.
