We inherit these concepts of who we are from our parents, and I appreciate the things my mother taught me, but sometimes the concepts we inherit are outdated or troubling.
We get all these sad endings and trauma, and there are a lot of heavy things and dark things that happen in the book but I like the fact that the characters actively have to make the choice to choose their happy ending which doesn’t come necessarily naturally to any of them. I think that’s probably more realistic.
I’m not sure about the white spaces (louder line breaks, perhaps?), but the fragments are often a result of my thriftiness.
