Wow! The ending really makes this book. It is very graphic and intense, but there is a very positive message to the story of overcoming your circumstances; that you have the power to use your unique gifts to make the crumbling world around you better. It shows how kindness and acceptance can completely change a person’s course and help them find a better way. I love this line at the end: “Being wanted, needed, and loved was the only thing likely to heal her broken soul.” I feel like this is a powerful message that people can take to heart if they’re wondering what they can do to help someone who is struggling.
This book really needs a sequel! Or at least a graphic novel made after it. This would make an awesome comic. Or at the very least, there needs to be some epic fan art of Myrikal and Baby... I can see them so perfectly in my head, it makes me wish I could draw.
