I finished this last night around midnight, and oh my god. My review on Goodreads went something like, “I don’t even know what to say.” That usually happens when I read such a unique and beautiful book like this.

In The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope, Rhonda Riley reveals the exhilarating, terrifying mystery inherent in all relationships: No matter how deeply we love someone, and no matter how much we will sacrifice for them, we can only know them so well…
