assumed that he is in some kind of mental hospital but he never quite says where he is. Through
his journey, you realize he's just trying to protect his younger self and innocence. Does he stay
This is a book that really clicked towards the end when I got the meaning. It is definitely a good

I’d give this a rating of 3.
