I’m just going to start off right away that I couldn’t get into this one, so I didn’t finish it. It wasn’t worth trying to push through.
I read the first few chapters, but I couldn’t make myself go any further. It felt like a chore
The book does seem interesting; a 17-year-old ice cream scooper has a run-in with a disgruntled, washed-up star and allows rumors of an attempted sexual assault to bloom. But there was just something about the story that didn’t pull me in or make me care to know what happens next.
One thing that bugged me about this book was that there was little dialogue to move the story on and instead we’re given summary recaps of characters that played a part in Nofar’s life. It was more telling the story than showing it in my opinion.. there was no passion in the narration.
With my new resolution to DNF books that I just can’t get into, this sadly had to be the first one.
However, thanks NetGalley for letting me (try to) read an advanced copy of this book and give my honest review.
