RATING: 4 out of 5
Perfect read if you:
- Want an easy read
- Want an adventure and romance book
- Want a strong, determined protagonist female lead
My thoughts: This book was very empowering to me as a female and how society doubts women and their abilities. I share McKenna’s stubbornness to be able to do everything alone and the opinion that just because I am girl doesn’t mean I always need help. I also understood her on how she felt that she needed to get away from everything and everyone. This book was good, but didn’t exactly pull me in or extremely impacted me like other books have for me. It is a good book for a easier read.
