Teen scream! With disclaimer!
Had this on my radar for #readharder2019 but had no idea it was so wee!
Long day, long week, not over yet... Apparently this qualifies as a book by or about someone who identifies as neurodiverse for #readharder2019 so here we are!
Maybe I was set up by the author‘s note at the beginning talking about how he wanted to write a story for his daughters where a girl is the hero, but our hero had a disappointing lack of agency. I‘d love to know what was driving her besides, apparently, being the fulfillment of a prophecy.
I swear to god this book is getting longer as I read it.
My book with less than 100 Goodreads reviews for #readharder2019! Unfortunately it‘s a little too busy in that way that mysteries tend to be so that they can keep ya guessin‘. Also feels weirdly mid-2000s for a book published in 2018.

The Original Girl On Fire™️: Esmé Squalor
I was so mad when I first read this and the survivor turned out to be Quigley Quagmire. Like, there‘s no reason it would have been one of the parents with so many fires to choose from. But still, So Mad.
So ahead of its time! All in the first chapter! From 2003!
Ugh, I know, I‘m supposed to be challenge reading. But my sweet Baudelaires need me!
You know, I don‘t know much about the classics...
My re-read of these kind of stalled. But what better time to pick it back up again than when trapped in the backseat on a road trip like a child.
