Hi everyone! Welcome to my Tour Stop for the Lemonade Revealed Book Tour! Be sure to check out the rest of the tour here. Let's get into the review!

First off, I just want to say that I read this while cramming for finals so I didn't exactly read the book very in depth. If that makes any sense. I'm saying that little disclaimer because his book is very very philosophical and psychological that if you don't pay attention to what's going, it's really easy to get lost. That happened a couple time for me where I just had no clue what was happening because there are so many pieces of the story that require 100% engagement or you will miss the details. After you really give the story all your attention, it becomes super engaging and you're pulled into this story where a boy tries to find who he is after washing up on a sunny island. Despite the feelings of abandonment, a past of abuse, the lingering traces of betrayal, he manages to go above that and continue living life with a greater sense. Along with the engaging story of how the boy rises up again, the island which he washes upon, Ahio, is currently in a state of political turmoil and before you know it, you're also pulled into the mystery and intrigue that is surrounding the story. Overall, this little book can be aggravating, confusing, and you might feel the urge to just put it down BUT if you push through, the story really pulls you in and before you know it, you want more. I hope this isn't the last we see of Ahio and I really hope I can reread this after finals are done because I know I'm definitely going to find something that I missed the first time. :)
