I didn‘t love this as much as I was expecting to. The time and place setting was interesting. I felt like Gong tried too hard to take on too many “issues” with this book, which led to it being a bit scattered and unfocused. I also couldn‘t feel the chemistry between the two MCs- a pretty big problem for a R&J retelling. The supporting characters fell absolutely flat for me too, which didn‘t help. I didn‘t hate it and it picked up towards the end.
