by Shelby K. (Salem): I read this when it first released. The writing is gorgeous and the book balances magical realism and the struggle with mental illness and grief responsibly, which can be tricky. There are themes and scenes that stick with me months after I read this. The author’s ability to illustrate a scene really sticks with me. A lot of depth to be found in this lovely book that held my attention well, throughout, considering it’s length. Recommend.
