What did I think?
Wow! Wow! Wow! This will easily be on my top 10 for 2020. The book is so beautifully written, the storyline, the plot, the characters. Love Love Love! I truly enjoyed following Adunni on her journey and I was so sad when it was over. I love when I finish book and I’m left with wanting to what the future holds for these characters, wanting to continue to watch their life unfold. I am not going to lie when I saw the style of writing in this book, I almost didn’t pick as my BOTM. I am so glad that I picked it anyway. Stop what you are doing right now, buy this book and read it. I promise you will not regret it!
