Review: This book had good world-building and descriptive writing. I was intrigued by a world built
around scent, which is a unique concept that I haven’t heard before in YA. The main characters are
likeable and interesting to follow as they go on their journey together. The story is told in multiple points
of view, which adds to the intrigue of the plot and the readers’ insight into the characters’ personalities
and points of view. ( )
