Genre: Mystery, Magical Realism
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I hate it when I start off a book thinking it’s gonna be a stellar read, only to have it go downhill and end up a 2-3 star read 🤦🏻♀️
What I liked:
⁃ I was really digging Travis’ POV and his special talent. His narration was my favourite part.
⁃ The setting and mystery of where Maggie disappeared to.
What didn’t work for me:
I’ve come to realize that magical realism and cult stories are just not for me. I didn’t like where the story ended up going. Not only did I figure things out early on (which I’m sure most readers will), but I found myself rolling my eyes and thinking it was kinda stupid.
In the end, I think a lot of you will enjoy this one, especially if you were a fan of Season 3 Riverdale.
Have you read it? Did you enjoy any of Shea Ernshaw’s other books?
