I felt like this book had a disproportionate amount of lead-up. The (cryptic) back of the book references “one fateful day” and “a terrible choice,” and this day is alluded to many, many times in the one hundred pages it takes to get us to that day. Once the story gets going, it’s heart-breaking and provocative, but it takes so long to get there that I abandoned the book at least once.
