I thought this was going to be another silly romance but it’s so much deeper than I expected it to be. I didn’t expect to tear up. The writing is fluid and relatable while the main plot and theme are so significant- how this girl tries to blend in and find some normalcy being a sister of someone with autism.
I love how it tackles the power of speech and how the author presented this subject in the light of a person with autism as compared to a normal person. It’s also very honest and the heroine’s realizations are very much affecting. So much of the ideas presented in the novel made me rethink of some of my worldviews and for a novel to be able to do that, I think it’s quite powerful. There is this friends-to-lovers trope but somehow, the author managed to make this element very unique. Definitely recommended.
