5/5 because it is such a lovely plot and I loved seeing Lily and Alice mature a bit throughout their journey. Overall I would say my favourite character is Alice. I felt quite connected to her probably because I related to how lonely and different she felt. I do also like Lily but she seemed a bit more silly. Well, perhaps not silly but a little bit less of a realistic thinker. I am happy that the author chose for her to also complete the journey because it has made her face reality a bit less of a naïve way. Cannot wait for the next book, which has sadly not been released just yet, but I want to know more about the main two characters!
