And it's exactly what our society needs and deserves. Alex Craft is the repulsively attractive love child of rape culture and patriarchal dominance run rampant. She holds up a mirror to not only our society, but to us as individuals, and most of us won't like what we see. This book is about recognizing the monster within us, but also coming to terms with exactly how it got there in the first place. It's about owning up to all of the problems that we either directly caused ourselves, or that we allowed to fester while we stood by watching the infection slowly take hold, because fighting it is hard, and it's easier to become complacent and turn a blind eye until it affects you in a way so real and direct you can't ignore it anymore. That moment, that's the moment we begin to sympathize with the monster. That's the moment we can no longer judge her, because we wish we could be her. Wish we could do the things she does. Little do we know, until the end, how much of a monster we already are, and how, compared to us, Alex Craft is a saint. At the end of this book, I was completely destroyed. Not because of what happened, but because of how disgusted I was to see the monster out of its mask. Not Alex, but us.

Alex and PK are the best example of what power friendship can have in a persons life. This is an amazing story and I don't say that very often. Alex who has lost so much reminds us all of dignity and basic niceness. This is a complex and dark story that completely caught me off guard. The what? To who? OMG!! That along with a couple of snorts at great quips and behavior insight.
Listen or read this book. You wont be disappointed
