loved the world building and ideas of habs and hells in the future. minh was a well written protagonist and i understood her and why she did the things she does. i think i liked the ideas and concepts the book presents more than the plot, and got a bit confused by some parts near the end, but i really enjoyed this!

took me a short while to get into the narration but really fell for this book. there was a level of surrealism that i really enjoyed, and i found myself disappearing into this beach town as i read. gave me a lot to think about in mother child relationships, and a lot of gratitude for my own. reccomend!
I really enjoyed this, saw a lot of wonderful moments from Rosa's life, and appreciated quotes from her writings used as dialogue. I am always shocked by just how many women have been in abusive relationships, she was so strong. Her conviction in her beliefs and the power of education is admirable There is a bit too much focus on her romantic life, and sometimes here are large/confusing jumps in time or place.
