However, none of these things have happened and now she is sitting silently next to Josh Harris on the plane, because she and Kath had a fight and so Kath switched seats with him for the flight back. When the plane crashes, Elyse miraculously survives along with Josh Harris, and the book follows the what happens after.
Told in the second person point-of-view, the reader is Elyse, making the story more personal and unexpected than otherwise possible. The reader experiences her anxieties, obsessions, and panic attacks alongside her.
This book was a different and more intense read- with a surprising twist ending. I was not sure how I felt about some of the characters, but ultimately, the end brings it together in a shocking way. I would recommend for people who enjoy surprising books with thought-provoking revelations. The book raises a lot of questions about life, purpose, and decisions made as well as about romance, crushes, mental illness, and even some about racism.
Overall, this was an intriguing read that I would recommend for people who are looking for a book that places the reader in the thick of it and includes a twist at the end.
