The first two chapters were a bit rough, and I didn’t love the style of the language, but I kept reading because I was intrigued. And then I read the third chapter and was hooked. By the end, I was in love. 

I didn’t find Sadie and Sam particularly likable, but I completely understood their motivations and their choices were believable. 

This was a really ambitious book, and I think Zevin executed it really well. You can tell she put in a lot of time researching to make it realistic. It’s clearly a love letter to gaming, and I really appreciated the style of the different sections. I think it added a lot to the narrative. This is definitely a book that I will enjoy even more on a future read, though having a physical copy would make it easier to flip back to remind myself of different sections.
