What a page turner! I haven‘t read a book this fast in ages! I was engrossed in Pippa‘s murder-suicide investigation from the jump and definitely fell for some red herrings — maybe they‘ll resurface in the sequels? (What could the sequels possibly be about?!) I really liked the mixed research report/narrative format too.

Feeling a little grumpy about getting added to 2 committees at work today, so I'm slacking on all library duties in favor of listening to a fun audiobook and helping @LittleMouse5708 with the yearbook... #schoollibraries #teachersoflitsy #librariansoflitsy

I cannot express how exceptional this novel is. As someone that teaches R&J on a yearly basis- THIS IS THE ADAPTATION THAT THE WORLD NEEDED. It is a MUST read. 1920s, Shanghai opposing gangs. In the R&J adaptation, this is more post teen love (19/20 now), full enemies after assumed teenage betrayal. I am already LOVING the sequel. Also, yes, I keep a planner mostly just to past pictures of book covers in. #shakespeareadaptation #teachersoflitsy

Kimberlone I will definitely check it out! 3w

Reading a book that takes place in Iran at an Italian restaurant in NYC felt a bit… off 😆 but the meal was delicious and the book was sweet.

It‘s a lovely coming of age story about “Fractional Persian” Darius‘ family, friendships, and mental health — and surprisingly zero romance (that‘s what the sequel is for)

“We have a saying in Farsi. It translates ‘your place was empty.‘ We say it when we miss somebody.”

Our middle high school is doing a dodgeball tournament for the last two periods of the day. I helpfully volunteered to hang out with any kids who didnt want to be in the noisy gym all afternoon - what a shame that I have to miss out on the chaos and read my book for the next hour... 🤣

This book could have been great — interesting and realistic sister dynamic, commentary about social media activism and police brutality, modern road trip following the Negro Motorist Green Book— but the structure did the book a tremendous disservice. The disjointed plot pieces didn‘t start to fit together until 200+ pages in. Such a shame. I‘m really perplexed by the writers‘/editors‘ messy narrative decisions.

WOW. I loved this book but I don‘t really know how to describe it.

Romeo & Juliet and Wuthering Heights meet Back to the Future and Taylor Swift?

That‘s not a great analogy but it‘s the best I can think of right now.

If you enjoy classic literature and/or time travel stories, give this a read. It‘s a twisty, fast-paced hybrid of both.
