About this deal

It was your usual timeskip sort of thing, which I guess I’m not mad about, but it was definitely not memorable in any way.

Honestly I never had any problem with Gen Z refrences in books but the way Ali tried to put these in almot every sentence and conversation between the characters made this book a bit cringe. Through the imagination of some of the world’s greatest authors, the English language comes to life in pages of our Readers.After Kamal denies that she is his granddaughter, Jude, now the General of the Liberation Militia, exploits her anger to groom her to become a suicide bomber. And true to Hazelwood's style, the characters were inherently likable, weaving an engaging tale that draws readers into the magnetic chemistry and dynamic of the main lead relationship. now, you may ask "why saffiyah, why do you continue to torture yourself with the shittiest books ever to be crafted by authors at 2 am with an empty head and no thoughts? Instead of putting a quote, I will be putting all of the pop culture references I found while flipping through again! like i was saying, although she's not the most creative and innovative person i’ve ever seen in my whole life, her books never fail to miss with me (i'm talking dead serious with you rn) bc they're always able to get me out of the ugliest and most disturbing reading slumps - and thank fck for that (cheers).

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. I enjoyed that the characters are older than most YA, being in that sort of anxiety-ridden purgatory between high school and “being an adult”. I don't remember it all, but there's some about reading erotic Percy Jackson fanfics and having him and someone sixty-nine.Did this book have too many Gen Z references, including TikTok, OnlyFans, Riverdale, AO3, Discord, and some people I don't want to hear about in my romance books, like Jeff Bezos, Timothée Chalamet and Cole Sprouse? Not a lot happened, there were more thoughts and feelings than anything else, and it was just really sweet. You either fade to black, have a short but non descriptive- tasteful scene, or just let it be for an educational and learning purpose. Also I hated how he was more like a side character in this book than the "actual" side characters which is the worst that could happen to a mmc.
