Although the initial intrigue around the grocery store wanes a little, it really pulls together towards the end. The contrast in the dual character perspectives gives insight into the complexity of people's world views, as everyone always feels they are just trying to be a good person, "rightly" or "wrongly".

Bought this book coz it was recommended to me not realising it was YA but I still had a good time. I think most kids are a bit more grown up by this age though - it's how innocent your parents thought you were not realising what you were really getting up to. To clarify: brownies at a party would DEFINITELY co rain pot and kids these days do not have such embarrassing email addresses.

Became addicted by the end although there is a lot of repetition reminding audience of things we already know! like yes, you literally just said this.

This book really effected me emotionally a number of times. I enjoyed the switching between then and now. Listening to the emails read out loud was really annoying but there weren't many of them.

Addictive despite being a bit predictable. A comfy listen, I had fun. A little repetitive at times as the protagonist constantly repeats the same thoughts and feelings. Great setting.

Could have accidentally listened to the whole thing and not got anything else done. Very real and relatable, love hearing about a woman with a dream in the arts who works hard pursuing what she loves despite having very human insecurities and flaws, the character has blend of toughness and fragility that makes her feel like someone you might already have as a friend.

Upbeat and cheerfully self-deprecating

Anna is a highly animated and down to earth woman. In this read she feels like a friend.
