I enjoyed this queer vampire friends to lovers, boarding school, murder mystery story but it fell a bit flat for me. It highlights a bunch of issues that are relevant to today's world and tons of high school drama. I did enjoy following Kat and her self discovery, learning to be who she truly was and not who she thought she was supposed to be.
I did notice there was quite a bit of uneven pacing throughout the story. Some areas dragged a bit while others felt completely rushed. Everything gets tied up in the last 50 pages of the book, which part of that was more of a "what happened afterwards".
