I read this book a long while back so forgive me if this review sounds vague. As with other local books, I enjoyed how the local context of this book was relatable. Although sometimes the switching between singlish dialogue and non-singlish narrative was jarring. I think the characters were very real and I could relate at one point or other to each of them. The situations explored, especially that of homophobia lifted the veil on something that we have, as a society, tried to avoid. The end left me sad and angry, not at the book but at ourselves. Worth picking up if you were looking for local books with an edge.
