This was an incredibly well told story of two Pakistani American teens and their families. Although the main story is when they‘re high school seniors, we learn a lot of family history for both. I felt many emotions while experiencing the lives of both Salahudin and Noor. They face some very difficult situations but come through with hope in the end.

Daisey 📷: We harvested wheat and started putting up straw this week, which means I‘ve been busy with very little reading or listening time. I finally managed to finish this book while running some farm errands this morning before we unloaded these loads of straw. #BooksOnTheFarm 45m

Faerry's tattoos are really intriguing to me. Not only do his self-inflicted scars serve as a kind of tattoo, but his actual tattoos (like the apple, the corpse flower, etc.) give us clues regarding the fairytales that he and Whimsy will come across in their journey through Sorrow's Garden. All of Faerry's physical marks are symbols of his physical and mental battles with depression. These were small but very meaningful details, in my opinion!

Part 2, Chapter 9 was so beautifully written, but so gut-wrenching and emotional. Whimsy and Faerry's encounter with Sorrow painted a poignant picture of the self-doubt and inner demons that Whimsy and Faerry struggle against. This chapter handled their depression very well, and though it was tough to read because of the heaviness of the topic, I think McBride broached the topic with great respect and sensitivity. Very good writing!

Not only is the writing style of this novel very interesting, but I am also captivated by how Whimsy processes her thoughts--even the thoughts she can't vividly recall. We experience the same gaps in her memories as she does, which is a fun experience as a reader. Being in her head also helps to make sense of how her depression affects the way she views the world and how it may tinge her memories of the Forest/Garden in certain ways.

About halfway done with this novel! So far, I am finding myself most intrigued by the vivid imagery and the style of writing. The imagery is setting up a really interesting world within the novel, and I'm enjoying the exploration into Whimsy's mind. The style of writing makes this novel's world feel sort of hazy and dreamlike, which I think fits with the illusiveness of the Forest. Excited to read more!

You ever pick up a book and it drives you insane, but you still want to see what happens? This was it. The ending was very tidy and too many things happened at the end. Lucky was the worse and then his behavior was just excused. The main character could be either naive or have deep musings, nothing in between. But it broke me out of a three month reading slump, so there is that.

Still unsure how I feel about this series. I love the concept of people with natural crime solving abilities, and the murder mysteries are good. However the teenage angst drives me nuts! That being said, I will need to know how the story ends and will be reading book 4.

“True love‘s kiss. True. Love‘s. Kiss!” I belt out the song and reach to turn on the radio as I spin the wheel, pulling around, heading after the girl who has no clue she‘s going to love me.
