3.75 stars. i don’t fully know how to process this book! 
it was interesting for sure, but also the ending half kinda ruined it for me. the beginning was great, it was intriguing and gross and uncomfortable. i was so excited to read it. but then the second half completely contradicted everything that happened in the first half. i won’t share spoilers but i am so mad at the ending parts of the book. it’s as if the author had this entire image of what she wanted for premise and takeaway of this book to be, but then got sucked into the harmful stereotypes of women and just gave into it with the last half. it was really disappointing. i would have probably given this around 4.5 stars had the ending been different, but the fact that it changed so much, ruined my thoughts of it.
