Ok, so I am not even going to lie about why I wanted to read this book so badly. As a person who lived all her life without seeing her own name on any keychains, rulers or anything like that this book became a must to read.
So the book goes about girl called Ida, who has always been able to skip back through the time to a choice / event that did not go well. She never thought about it too much, it just been a thing she was able to do.
Ida is half Vietnamese, half European and identifies self as bisexual. Ida is in relationship with Daisy, the genderqueer character who uses they/them pronouns. Their relationship was very fascinating and fresh. I really enjoyed both of them, in fact I was a bit sad that I couldn’t learn more about Daisy’s life, especially home story as it was hinted numerous times.
As a reader who seldom reads fantasy, I found some places in the book a bit confusing, however Evans did amazing job to explain time travel and consequences that came with it.
Overall I hope that Evans will write sequel to Ida as I am very curious what happened next!
On the side note, this book reminded me of my very loved game called ‘Life is strange’. Both game me fuzzy feeling and just made me feel good about myself.
I received a review copy for honest opinion.
