Today, at Kirkus Reviews...

...I wrote about Out of Darkness, by Ashley Hope Pérez:

I’m a crier. I cry easily and often, set off by stories ranging from Mad Max: Fury Road to Ms. Marvel to that Subaru commercial about the guy who took a cross-country road trip with his old dog. (Even just typing out the description of that last one made me tear up.) So I do understand that when I say something made me cry, most people take that information with a grain of salt.

Out of Darkness made me cry so hard that I got the dry heaves, the kind of ugly-crying that I experienced while reading Code Name Verity and The Storyteller. So when I say it made me cry, I mean that it MADE ME CRY. Consider yourself warned.
