I really enjoyed this book (I listened to the audio version.) At first, it seemed like the typical teen love/angst story, but it took a really surprising turn. The characters are all well-realized and feel real. The author has thought out the locations and backstory well, and I felt like I was exploring and learning with Ava. I look forward to reading more from this author.
