I might have liked this book more if I’d read it before David Levithan’s Love is the Higher Law. I feel like it’s trying to do something similar, but Levithan did it better (and in fewer words). I was annoyed by the tense changes and the switches from third person to first, and while the present tense wasn’t terrible, it still bugged me. I also didn’t get enough closure to satisfy me, but at the same time I have no interest in a sequel (which is good, since to my knowledge there isn’t one).
This is the third book I’ve read by Forman. Much like what happened when I read my third Lauren Beukes book, I think the time has come to admit I like Forman’s story concepts more than I like her actual writing and I need to either give up on her books or adjust my expectations.
