4 gnomes out of 5 gnomes for having a character who’s quirky yet believable and a killer mystery.
love the premise of the story. It feels plausible too because if the
person you trust most looks at you like you’re crazy then it would be

probably be wishing that the main character Vee trusted the right people
has narcolepsy but not exactly the normal kind. Narcolepsy is one of
those diseases that kind of sounds made up but would be horrible to have
the more you think about it. It’s a great/inventive way to explain her
ability though. She for reasons unknown to her is able to slide into
people and experience everything they do. Once she’s slid into someone
