Veronique's notes:

This was a weird but magical book

You follow Killian who wants to become a world famous chef. It deals with abuse, mental illness, selfharm and suicide

This all does make a real impact because of the lyrical and fairytale like writing style

You see the main character changing from innocent boy to a more mature and driven man

and in this story it looks at what you can loose when having such a powerful dream

and it really makes you question who was the actual villain in this story

This was definitely a surprise and I think more people need to read it
