I came into A Good Neighborhood a bit timid. I’d seen mixed reviews. Some hated it. Some loved it. I was worried about which side I’d fall on.
Perhaps because I live in the South or maybe because I’m a raging empath, I feel hard and fast into this book.
Xavier’s story is one that was so promising and uplifting—he was going places—until a selfish, racist, piece of trash decided his own life and desires mattered more than anything.
I loved everything about this book, until the ending. I wanted, well, I can’t tell you what I wanted without spoiling the ending.
I have a feeling this is a story that will stay with me for a while.
