When I originally read the blurb of Tape, I had high hopes that this would take me on an emotional rollercoaster and pull my heart strings, and it has in a way, but not to the extent that I anticipated.

The whole plot is a moving story, the idea of the universe connecting us through time and things which happen are meant to be. The whole Daughter and Father relationship is a nice idea, I think it however, could have been more successful if it were just two teenagers going through the same experiences. The boy Malik, I think should have played a significantly bigger part in the story, he didn't really need to be there with the amount he was mentioned.

The writing style I was confused by, there was constant switching around between Ryan and Ameliah and you didn't really connect with the characters in the story.

To conclude, Tape is a moving and beautiful story, however, it wasn't as emotional as it could have been and some aspects needed more pages, like Ameliahs relationship with Malik.
