   Quick Read
It was an okay book with a twist ending that was only somewhat predictable.
I didn't find myself really connecting with any of the characters and the plot was a little confusing, but it was still an okay book.

   Easy Read
It’s a good story. A quick read and entertaining.

   Loved it
I feel like this book had a lot of hype, but it met my expectations. I loved it- drama, twists, and all!

   Disappointed
I really wanted to read this book, but it wasn't good for me. I found myself just reading so that I could finish the book. I did not feel invested in the characters. The only part of the book that elicited any kind of response from me was the animal cruelty, and I felt that was unnecessary and could have been left out. I wouldn't recommend this book.

   Kinda Culturally Insensitive 🥺
Fatima is a highly respected name for a dog in the book and the author is a bit problematic in using it. Fatima is the only pet that is described, and she has a chubby nose and wide face. It seems like a play on stereotypes. Next time, do better research to not offend your Muslim Readers.

   I don’t get it. SPOILERS
I don't understand the appeal of this book. There is no character development and the writing is pretentious. The narrator is the only character that makes me care about it. I knew the twist early on. The trope of dead the whole time has been eliminated.

   Disappointing
I gave it 3 stars because of the first 70% of the book. It was easy to read. The romance is a young adult read and love feels real with adolescent hormones, so I didn't find it silly, over the top or corny. The rest of the book is mourning, mourning, mourning, guilt, and more mourning after the plot twist around 80%. The story was going to be over when I rushed to the end. Part of the story development is realistic because I grew up in the 1%. I wouldn't recommend this book for adults. It is a letdown.

   Jaw on the floor.
What is that? Did, did. It is I. It is just. Did you read? My jaw was on the floor for ten minutes. It is well written. It's so unexpected. It was so much beyond words. There are many books about Mental illness. This is nothing like this before. This book is the epitome of grief and mental instability. If I tried to remove my eyes, I couldn't. It is formatted in a way that is unique and interesting. It is a love story? Is this a mystery? It's a great work of literature that throws the reader for a loop. I was confused by Cadence until the end. She made a lot more sense with her actions and personality.

   Excellent read that will keep you wanting more!
I needed to know what would happen next so I read it in one sitting. I didn't think the ending was correct. The book is narrated by a girl. She was born into a wealthy family that always appeared in control. Cady is trying to recover her memories from the summer when she was 15. Cady spent her summers on a private island owned by her grandfather on Martha's Vineyard. This is where the story takes place because each of his daughters received a house there. A map and a family tree were provided by the author. Excellent read that will keep you reading.

   I hated this book
I didn't like this book very much. It was predictable, the plot was bland, and most of the characters were uninteresting. I didn't like the writing style at all. It was a lot of work for a quick end.
