“Look around. It’s almost gone.
If only someone had told me that before. About life. If only I had understood.”
When I first read the synopsis for Pessl’s first YA novel about a girl and her friends who wind up in a purgatory like place and have to vote to see which single one gets to live it shot to one of my most anticipated of the year. It just sounded like something up my alley and like something that Pessl could knock out of the park and needless to say I definitely think she did!
