Sourced: Snagged the e-book at my local library
Meows: 4.02 out of 5. While I didn’t fully love the story itself, the writing and capture of a moment in time was honestly so beautiful.

I tend to gravitate towards fiction, and while I certainly have read plenty of other genres, I don’t feel as though my repertoire is fully rounded out.
