5* for Marx, Dong Hyun and Bong Cha

Felt raw and real feelings throughout the book: loved some, hated some, infuriated a lot. But that made it more realistic.

Nevertheless, can’t bring myself to give it a 5* because of how toxic Sam and Sadie’s relationship was. I absolutely hate the fact that Sam’s manipulative actions were romanticized and overlooked in the book.
Spoiler Furthermore, I absolutely despised that Marx’s mark on Naomi was minimized to somehow bring Sam into that part of Sadie’s life. Naomi is half-Japanese, not half-Korean, but they made a point of calling her half-Asian so that they can somehow connect her to Sam. Japanese and Korean are very culturally different, and should have been treated as such.
