5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written, Must Read!
Reviewed in the United States on 3 March 2020
Trigger warning: sexual assault, rape, unplanned pregnancies, family deaths, and abortion.

You know how you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover? Unfortunately, I do. And this cover was STUNNING. So when I began seeing this book pop up all over #bookstagram, I knew I needed to see what it was about.

This book, “The Opposite of Fate” by Alison McGhee, reminded me so much of “Know My Name” by Chanel Miller. I know it isn’t fair to compare a heartbreaking memoir to the storyline in a fiction book, but the entire time I read about Mallie’s struggles in this book, I was thinking about Chanel in her book.

Needless to say, I LOVED everything about this book. I’m not even going to try and write a review because I won’t do it justice. But I will share some of my favorite quotes, because the author’s writing was beautiful.
1. “Mallie never had to make up a place where she felt safe, because everyone she had Zach. Zach Miller has been the place where nothing bad could happen to her”.
2. “Once upon a time there was a sister, whose brother wished he could turn back time”.
3. “The truth was that no one could be who they used to be. Minute by minute, everyone was becoming the person they would be. Minute by minute, all the possible fates were being decided”.

This will definitely be one of my top ten books of 2020, so y’all should go pick it up and read it too!
