i had some bumpy moments with this one, similar to ones i had with The Chain, all related to issues of cultural appropriation and cultural context, but ultimately, i think the direction of the characterization of Munroe made those moments acceptable for me. as usual, plotting and pacing were excellent. i really enjoy the continued exploration of Munroe's relationship to love and to herself.
