3.5 stars. I was kind of expecting more of a novelization than this ended up being. It felt more like nonfiction meets a present tense narrative if that makes any sense.

Heiligman brings incredible insi...

I received a copy of this book through Goodreads' First Reads program. Prior to receiving this, it never occurred to me that there would be a genre of "YA non-fiction". It isn't any less factual, and it doesn't stray from adult topics, so what "YA non-fiction" seems to mean here is that the book...
