This is a historical fiction novel set in the 1930s. Katey and her roommate go out to a flapper bar and meet Tinker a young man that forever changed both of their lives.
I am sorry about the meh summary but I honestly don’t remember a lot of this book. I finished this book early this month and I can’t remember the last ⅓ of this book.
I listened to this book via audiobook and while I was engaging with the beginning this story started to drag after its impressive first four chapters. There was such a strong momentum when the story focused not only on Katey but on her roommate Eve and Tinker. However, when the book shifted to focus primarily on Katey, I completely checked out.
There was just something about Katey that was a little too perfect. She was such a “good” she wasn’t as flashy as Eve, but she was beautiful. Katey loved books and took true interest in others. She was also just so dull.
I felt that Katey was more of the ideal character that people wanted to read about so she didn’t feel real.
This book was not able to keep me engaged and I gave it a D.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
