That's sort of a you had me at hello kind of beginning for me And the rest or less lived up to the setup with some lovely lyrical writing If it didn't UITE live up to some of my favorites in the misbehaving disallusioned rich kids at fancy school genre like Special Topics in Calamity Physics and The Secret History I nonetheless really liked it a lot
