This book - a slave narrative in space- was haunting, horrifying, disturbing, dark, but so, so good. The character’s voices were so specific and clear, the relationships so clearly affected by circumstance and yet loving in the ways they could be. This book paints a picture of an ugly world, whose characters still have to live, and still each have their own small reasons to keep on trying. It's also my favorite representation of gender outside binary in any book. Even set on a futuristic spaceship, this book is incredibly grounded in the injustices of our world and ends with a seed of hope.
