emotional funny fast-paced

  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? N/A


i literally stayed up until 3 am to finish this book. on the surface it's a satirical critique of a lot of issues that are present in academia but it's honestly so much deeper than that. i cannot stop thinking about the ending either. 

Spoiler(also stephen and michael can both step on legos)
