“That’s how you fill in the blanks — with stories and memories of the people who love you. If they lie to you, who are you then?.. The person you thought you knew, your favorite person starts to disappear, a mirage, unless you convince yourself the parts that matter are still true.”
I finished this book in less than 12 hours. I started reading it before dinner last night and had to force myself to put it down. I couldn’t wait to get back to reading it this morning because it was just addicting. I don’t know if it’s the author’s writing style, the story, or the characters but I was hooked by it all. I wanted to know the whole story and loved the way the author pieced together information from Hannah’s flashbacks with Owen.

🤯 That ending.
I see why Reeses Book Club and Book of the Month picked this novel for their May pick. You have to add this to your summer reading list. It’s addicting, mysterious, and overall a wild ride of emotions. It will keep you reading until you’ve read the very last page and, if you’re like me, you’re going to still want more.
Now, I’m going to go back to devouring this delicious burger from The Social Vegan in Lexington! 😋
