I loved this so much! The fact that it wasn't based on sci-fi and fantasy but I still enjoyed it so much means 5 stars. The prose was written so well at times - great evening read to listen to, the descriptive rhythm lulled my anxiety to a gentle sway. I love Cath and Levi so much! I'd date either of them I'm crushing so hard - but in the end they are perfect for each other. I love Reagan so much too! She's a no shits given bad ass with a warm heart. I warmed up to Wren at the end and I thought Art was the perfect blend between 'cool-dad' and 'not-a-Gary-Stu'. I could go on but honestly Rainbow did a brilliant job of making you feel exactly about the characters as you should. The scenes that pulled the heartstrings feel real - both good and bad ones. The potentially mushy scenes were romantic without being an eyerolling cliché. The read was kinda slow but I think it was a character driven story so that's ok. It wasn't painful slow. I saw a lot of myself in the characters and learnt alongside Cath in her experiences. The narration of this audiobook (I put down the actual book to listen to it halfway through - eyes sore from the flu) was actually really nice and the right mix of calm while still keeping the emotions. I love it, thank you so much to Rainbow and the narrator.
