Reading this novel was a wild ride. Sarah K. Stephens has created two characters, a married couple - Anna and Sean - who from the outside look incredibly perfect, but things are much darker on the inside. I am still not sure how I feel about Anna. She came off as pretty bougie and was not very likable. Don't get me wrong; Sean has plenty of issues. Together they are a hot mess.
One of Anna's students becomes delusional about their relationship. While Anna is staying professional, Bard starts mentally unraveling and becomes a danger. This story deals heavily with mental illness and how it can be passed down to other generations. I liked how it was told from the perspective of different characters. I found this novel to be fascinating and enjoyable.
