For its surface I am bound
And there are times stones done fill my pockets
And it’s into this river I drown”

Klune really knows how to use words to break you in a million pieces then put you back together, different yeah, but whole again.
And he has a thing for repetitions and this book was not an exception. I love all the times the title of the book was repeated over and over again, and I loved the sentiment behind each one of them.
It hurt, I’m not going to lie. It hurt a lot. I struggled to continue because there were points in which the pain was too much and I really couldn’t continue without feeling hollow. But I had, let’s say faith (pun intended), that things would go the way they were supposed to go. In pain from beginning to end.
Beautiful written, peculiar, and full of feelings. If you love Klune, then you need to pick this up sooner of later. It took me a long time to finish it, because I had to put it on hold due to the pain I was feeling, but I’m glad I finally did pick it up, because I’m changed after reading this. I love Klune and his books!
