Finished Temper by Nicky Drayden. She's a local author, apparently. This is her second novel. It did NOT go a direction I expected at the outset, which I appreciate. In the back half, I was so enveloped in the world that I was in danger of missing my bus stop. I'm going to have to look up her previous book, which won some awards. #books https://wandering.shop/media/R4ZsQozbBtda12ilDg8
