What did I think?
“I’ve never been much of a swimmer, but I get what he means. Like, being caught in a current or something. A rip.” – Mark Brandi
Narrated by a young woman on the margins of society (Dani), Brandi has crafted this novel to perfectly capture the character and the predicament in which she finds herself: Homeless and an addict. She has a friend, Anton, and a dog, for whom she cares, but life isn’t easy to navigate when you don’t have a roof over your head. Dani finds herself in a tight predicament which places her in danger.
This was a fabulous book from start to finish. The ending is disturbing, but—be warned—Brandi doesn’t spell it out. It doesn’t need to be. A real and chilling novel. One of the best books I’ve read in a long while.
