I didn’t go into this one expecting much based on some of the other reviews but I was surprised and actually really enjoyed The Shadows Between Us.

The whole book is simply a long string of comedic errors with a love story and murder mixed in. Think one unrealistic mistake after another, only to end in an unrealistic ending.
I could blame the pandemic but I'd also need to thank it too. But was that all? Was that the reason I got so lost and burnt out? I don't know. I'm just rambling. Right?
I'm calling this a "Mini Review" because it'll be short and sweet... Just like the book. The Seer of Shadows by Avi is just BARELY over 200 pages. Honestly, it could be finished in an afternoon because it reads so fast.
