Great Summer Read !5 star

I bought this book over a month ago and just started reading this week and have already finished it. Each chapter has about two pages, maybe three at the most. These compositions of short stories cover topics such as domestic violence, gentrification, prejudice, sexual assault, etc.55

Trash1 star

I would’ve given it 0 stars if I could. Just random uninteresting stories. Also if you get the audiobook the authors voice is really annoying sounds like a little kid rambling, no wonder she wrote this piece of trash. I only finished this book because my school made me. Absolute trash don’t waste anytime with this book.15
