"This book reads like an epic poem. After tragically losing the love of their life, Jules concocts a wild plan to spread B’s ashes. While their loss is heartbreaking, Jules is so present in their grief and remembrance of B that you can’t help but feel heartful by the pure love that emanates from this story. I wish I could read this forever.
