degrees of success However, this is the chance to take on a real murder case, and the detective in Ivy is just too curious and slightly self destructive to pass up the opportunity.What follows is an intriguing examination of the similarities and differences between magical and nonmagical teenagers, schools, and lifestyles Ivy finds herself comparing the Ivy that is both to the Ivy that was and the Ivy that could have been, alongside her mind s inevitable comparisons to her sister She has a chance to see what she has believed her whole life that she is missing, and whether that is actually better, easier, or in a neater package.And, you know, a violent murder to investigate And various degrees of snarky, magical teenagers, one of whom may or may not be a Chosen One And conspiracies And magical theories and nonmagical theories And lots and lots of booze.I enjoyed this female driven dive into urban fantasy detective noir The mystery plot, to me, wasn t terribly complicated, but I enjoyed and was intrigued by the journey I found the magical system and the way the magical world was set alongside our own fascinating I related a lot to Ivy, with the interplay between how she once wanted her life to go and whether or not she was content with how she found her life to be, her blindspots which I won t go into because many of the reasons I love her are somewhat spoiler y , her penchant to drink too much wine, her desire to have books whisper to her, and her bravery in picking herself back up after every tumble A fun read that, while not perfect or especially convoluted, nevertheless proved to be both enjoyable and thought provoking Jason, if you are reading this, you will Hate This Book TM flag 1 likeLike see review View 1 comment Jan 04, 2019 Mariana Calderon rated
