Some chances happen only once in a lifetime.
For Rook, it’s either the circus, or stay at the orphanage.
And become nothing. Stay nothing.
For Mari, she will follow Rook. For now. Until she can escape her own past.
I first started reading this book as part of the Kindle Vella program but I didn't finish it. I'm glad I finally had the chance to read the whole things from beginning to end. It's a really fast read, novella in length, so it didn't take long at all.
Rook and Mari are the underdogs for sure. I was firmly in their corner, rooting for them from the very first pages. They are endearing and so deserving of all things good. What I loved most about them is the way they stayed together and took care of each other. Especially Rook. He's so good to Mari. I absolutely loved him.
I wish this story had been longer. It ended too soon for me and I wanted more.
Content: mention of whippings, a fight, mild peril, a sweet kiss.
