Realistic and incredibly harrowing

This book is unique, I have never read anything like it. It's dark and bittersweet and filled with an incredible tangle of emotions!
The start was a bit unnecessarily drawn out, there were a few annoying typos and I would have preferred more answers at the end,
but ultimately I absolutely adored it.
