Ask Again, Yes

5/5 stars This book has left me speechless. I thought I would be writing my longest review yet, but I cannot wrap my mind around how incredible this story is.

Just another week

I walked out this morning and instead of being hit with the normal wall of hot, humid air, I felt a temperate breeze. Hopeful, I pulled open my weather app to see what the high was for today.
