Completely amazing book!
This book may be triggering to those who are prone to depression, suicidal thoughts, and alcohol abuse. If that is not something that affects you, I highly recommend ACSDAL. It's my second favorite book I've read this year (after Where the Crawdads Sing, which is mindblowingly amazing) and it emotionally affected me so much. I could totally sympathize with Rhen and his suffering was so real to me. Harper and Grey are were pretty cool. One of the main characters had cerebral palsy, another main character was African-American, and there was an MM couple, so yay for well-done representation! Everyone is ready for different books at different times, and although I recommend this novel for age 15+ (I think adults would enjoy it as well as teens) since I don't think I would have been ready for it at 14 or younger, you/your child may understand and enjoy the novel at this age. I'm very much looking forward to reading book #2 of this series!
