this book fell a bit short for me

nothing happened until around part 10

I do get that it was character development but the plot didn't move forward at all

the ending however got me so frustrated (in a good way) because I wanted to read on so badly but it was already too late


Not bad at all! A bit to the slow side, not much is happening to the majority of the book as it focuses on the characters' development, but it kept me reading and l was never bored. I enjoyed it a lot!
