    You can also read this review on my blog :)A Flicker in the Clarity aims towards representing reality with all its imperfections: unresolved issues, toxic relationships, unexpected events, and the pain of heartbreak. For this, the novel gets its stars. However, I wish the novel had gone deeper. I was left wanting to know a lot more than what I got.As far as plot goes, there isn't one clearly mapped out. That's why I think the book represents real...

    I cannot even find the words best to describe this book. I was taken on a wild ride, looking into everyone and understanding so much. I have connected so much with this book that moments where I wasn't reading it left my mind wondering what Evie, Emma, Theo and Jack were up to. But never Alice. Never the cabbage. The ending of course wrecked me. why did that have to happen? why did it end like that? I'm a blubbering mess because of it and I don't...

    So I have so many amazing feels for this book. 😊 It threw me back into my high school life and allowed me to revisit some of the friendships I had. This book helped me really understand how toxic those friendships were and how great of a thing it is that they are over. Evie truly was myself in high school and this book was something I really needed. Friendship is powerful in both good and bad ways and it is beautiful to go on Evie’s journey ...
