How can I ever describe this novel??? I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!!! I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!!! This was one more novel added in the best books of 2020 list. I will tell you some things about the book so let’s go.
*Points I liked.
This novel is mind-blowing. I am in so much love with this book. I have drooled over it for a week and I am still drooling over it right now. It is for the young teens that are between 7-15 years of age but still this book is magical. The concept of this novel is friendship and love. I couldn’t get enough of this novel and I can’t wait to read more of this author’s books. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT SO MUCH. THIS BOOK IS THE BEST!!!! The best part of this book is its friendship and the love of two roommates. The way they adjust with each other and how they mingle about is just so fun to read. I want to reread the novel right now, it’s that fun. This novel has some black and white pictures and they describe the story so well. This book is a genuine piece of art and no this is no paid review and no I am not exaggerating. This book is seriously very good. It has nice characters, they are well described although there is one problem that I will tell you later. The book is small but everything is awesome. This book is a firecracker. I have never loved any book so much. Now we are off to the only sad part of this awesome book.
*Points I Disliked.
This book is awesome and best of 2020 for me and all that but I did miss some things, for example, the description of Skunk and Badger was a little confusing. I sometimes got mixed up between both the characters and also there is a tiny part in the novel where there is a small part that totally confuses me. These two things were the only drawbacks in this novel.
But still, this novel was so good and awesome that I couldn’t put it down. I finished this novel in just one sit. It was a beautiful concept and I can’t wait to read more books from this author, I am seriously in love with her writing skills and her style.
So that’s it for today. I will be back as soon as my dear WordPress stops glitching because I am on the verge of quitting blogging. Hope to see you all soon. Take care and until next time…
