Mary H.K. ChoiChoi writes all her characters – even the minor ones – with such tenderness that it’s impossible not to be rooting for all of them at the same time. This novel plays with emotional distance in such a great way. Friendship as a replacement for family intimacy, digital connection as a surrogate for IRL relationships. And the amazing vulnerability that happens when we’re ready to break down all of those boundaries. After you finish the last chapter, flip to the next page for the book’s real twist ending.
