designs on Mae and Rossa If you go into this book expecting a traditional fantasy novel, or even a traditional coming of age story, you might be disappointed view spoiler none of the teen protagonists ever really does much protagonizing, and in the end you get the sense that Rita was really the one making all the important choices in the story, along with Rita s ex girlfriend Audrey hide spoiler But that actually makes this book feel like an accurate depiction of what it s like to be a teenager you re full of passion and dying to take control of your own life, but adults still hold all the power in the end Where this book really shines is in Griffin s depiction of teenage longing, the awful misery of being in love with someone who doesn t love you back, or outgrowing your old childish attachments There are some gorgeous moments in this book that have stuck with me since I finished reading it, and the ending totally got me choked up Griffin has a keen eye for the beautiful agony of adolescence, and that s what makes this book such a compelling read flag 6 likesLike see review Jan 21, 2019 Gabriela Pop rated it it was amazing review of another edition Yet another mindblowing

couple of higher beings taking the form of animals looming over all of their lives The writing style is as enthralling as ever and the plot is so captivating that it takes no time to get into the

There s multiple timelines in this mostly the first summer and three years later giving us a snapshot into the innocence of the siblings during the former as they are introduced to this house where the evil forces have already taken root and the latter when a far less obvious creature is feeding on the remnants of peace but by having them follow one another it was incredible to see the different
