The chapters spell out "Dear Andromeda, your name, I think, is beautiful."
Phoenix, don't worry. Things will turn out better!
At first read this line just sounds so unrealistic. Then I remember how there are still universities out there where being raped is against the schools honour code and so the victims are punished. Shake my head.
I just started crying. I have a friend who was raped and abused by his mom, and only his dad believed him. This rings so true . . .
This was such a brilliant book, and it's such an important subject, that all too often gets ignored, thank you for writing this, #freetheboys
