The Museum of Us
“That’s the magic of fiction; that something can be more true than truth.”
What a read. What a beautiful, terrifying read.
Sadie and George. That’s how it’s always been. George, her knight in shining armor, her true love, her prince, hers. Sometimes they were pirates or secret agents on an impossible mission. Some days were spent wandering through the Hogwarts library, rifling through a thousand million magical pages. Until Sadie crashes. Then the hospital is lying, trying to take George away from her. He is fading, and she doesn’t want to be alone. But the biggest obstacle Sadie faces is herself—and the fact that, of course, George isn’t real.
Honestly, I cannot make you read this book. I cannot explain the infinitesimals it means to me. It struck me—I don’t have to experience what Sadie did to understand what she was going through. I began to see little bits and pieces of myself inside her until I couldn’t fathom who was who anymore. I applaud the author for her profoundness and absolutely loved all the Harry Potter references in the book.
I assure you, after reading The Museum of Us, you will have achieved universal philosophical wisdom.
