I finished this book on Saturday and have been trying to find the words for a review.
As much as I loved this book, it angered me. Jivan’s story was heartbreaking and, sadly, it is a reality for so many.
While reading, I found myself yelling at those who refused to stand up for Jivan and those that eventually allowed the pressures of the government and society.
While I can’t say I enjoyed this book, I did like it—if that makes sense. The writing and narrative voice was unique for each character, which made the story leap from the pages. The topic was heavy but important.
I definitely recommend this book.
