The notion of belonging and the consequences of not conforming to the ‘norm’ form the backbone of this atmospheric and infectious read. The quirky central character has a childlike innocence that I found endlessly endearing. This is a good book to curl up with on a lazy afternoon, and with the absence of any chapters or page breaks, it is hard to stop reading!
When morning comes, once again I'm a convenience store worker, a cog in society. This is the only way I can be a normal person.
