This book was great and I’m still wrapping my mind around it in the way that a good book leaves you engaged long after you finish it. Cee and Kasey are both compelling characters living in a world that feels inevitable but also impossible. Inevitable and impossible are actually great words to describe this story.
So many of the events that take place or the choices made feel as if they were inevitable, but seemed so impossible as an outcome. He really makes us sit in those challenging moments and feelings and I admire that so much.
The characters made this world so much more complicated and real.
Kasey doesn’t react, think, or feel the way that other people around her do, and I found that comforting. There have been many times in my own life that I’ve felt just a little off, and I believe that others will also partly see themselves in Kasey. I believe that people will partly see themselves in Cee too, for how she embraces life and refuses to let any barriers keep her from the earth’s beauty.
I think this story is perfect for the younger generation grappling with climate change, wanting to be fair to everyone, and to still get the life they believe they deserve. This book tackles that perfectly and does it in a way that makes my heart ache.
There are also so many twists, turns, and surprises. I am thoroughly impressed with He’s ability to craft a story that feels felt like the best and most stunning big-screen revelations. I didn’t see them coming.
This is a power and engaging book and I highly recommend it. If you’ve seen the move “Moon,” then this book is especially for you and that’s all I’ll say on that.
