Thoughts: Hurt, Pain, Love, Art, some big themes in this story. There is such raw feeling and I loved it. The feelings that are shared and the ones that aren’t, are so beautifully and realistically written. I just loved this story so much. I plan to get the physical book when it comes out. Overall this story is amazing! I would highly recommend you pick it up in May!
