This book was spectacular

I absolutely loved this book. There are so many unexpected twists and turns and mysteries that you are entertained the entire time. Lore is an amazing protagonist that you support and connect to very early on. Every character interaction is either heart warming or bone chilling, and I especially loved Miles. 7/5 stars, masterpiece of a book, 100% recommend. There is a decent amount of swearing and violence, and a scene where Lore describes being sexually assaulted, but nothing a mature 13 year old couldn't handle.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
