Why We’re Waiting On It
Biracial MC? Multicultural upbringing? Not sure where she fits in? This is becoming more and more relatable as time goes on. We’re curious to see how well that cultural identity struggle comes across, especially as Dani experiences it a lot. Plus, a sporty MC!!! Maybe it’ll motivate us to get off our butts?
Dani has an ARC that she’s brought along on holiday, so you won’t have to wait long to find out more! She’s also going to the launch party on release day, so be sure to follow her on @dani_reviews to see how that goes.
