" But really the term "forgive and forget" doesn't make sense to me. Forgiving does allow
us to stop dwelling on an issue, which isn't always healthy. But if we forget, we don't learn from our mistakes. And that can be deadly."
This is about a girl named Pierce, who died and met a guy named John. This is a Persephone and Hades retelling.
In this version, John is called the Keeper of the Underworld. This book is a mystery, romanse, supernatural and contemporary. This book was easy to read and understand. I liked the flashback scenes. I loved Pierce's family and there religous beliefs. I didn't
really like Pierce. She was so dumb and oblivious to details. I didn't like that it took place in high school. There was a lot of emotions that I felt while reading this book. I felt happy, sad, mad and frustrated. I didn't really like this book. This book
does have trigger warnings: rape, teacher to student abuse, sexual relationships with teachers, suicide and death. I didn't like the teacher character in this book. He tries to make a sexual pass on Pierce. This scene made me cringe and I hated it. There was
a mystery in this book but, it was easy to figure it out. This book is recommended for people in high school. I would not really recommend this book.
