Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super good read - couldn't put it down! Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great themes with an addicting narrative. Picked it up just before flying overseas and actually enjoyed being jetlagged so I could read it all night. Loved the different perspectives the story is told from, and the detail that goes into seeing it from each character's own viewpoint. A story that delivers a message that feels even more important these days.
