    I won this book on a Goodreads first reads giveaway.I m not really sure what to say about this other than I thought it was as the stars say okay.There was a lot going on here, which I m not entirely sure was a good thing Somehow this book managed to feel both over and underwhelming at the same time between the constant virtue signaling, the information dump about people s backgrounds, and how everyone living on the same block seems to suffer from some rare disease it s a lot to swallow and I won this book on a Goodreads first reads giveaway.I m not really sure what to say about this other than I thought it was as the stars say okay.There was a lot going on here, which I m not entirely sure was a good thing Somehow this book managed to feel both over and underwhelming at the same time between the constant virtue signaling, the information dump about people s backgrounds, and how everyone living on the same block seems to suffer from some rare disease it s a lot to swallow and sort out.We re treated the POVs of multiple different characters, Emma a single mother, Riley her teenage daughter, Genevieve the pretentious grandmother, Clark the flighty father, and Miller a single dad So, it s a lot to take in as it is It doesn t help that the story isn t consistently moving forward One chapter is about Emma in the present, then the next chapter is about Miller doing something with his daughter than randomly meandering back in time with little to no warning for almost the...
