5✨ Wallace finds himself at his own funeral when a reaper named Mei comes to bring him to a tea shop to meet Hugo. He denies for a long time that he is dead, but is not ready to move on from the life he barely lived. The afterlife dynamic in this book is different than others. Kline brings the characters to life in his writing. I will definitely be reading more from this author. I‘ve loved everything I‘ve read so far.
