⚠️ This review contains spoilers!

I accidentally started this book 70% of the way through (I must have accidentally tapped a chapter title from the index at the beginning and my kindle took me to it). I didn't even notice! I finished it, and thought "wow, that was so short".

I dunno what that says about the book that I could skip most of it and not realise.

I think the ending was a bit too much "wow I'm fully cured now here I go to live happily ever after". It didn't feel too realistic. The moral of the story is "the grass is always greener" and you don't realise what you have until you lose it. Yes, her brother and bestie are alive and well but is she really going to be fulfilled for the rest of her life knowing what she's missed out on?
