A fascinating glimpse into the dynamics of a 1960s counter-culture commune (heavily inspired by the Manson Family) all through the eyes of a disenchanted but hopelessly naive tween caught up in the raw, electric momentum.

4.5 out of 5: I reeeeally enjoyed the framed narration: the story is recounted decades after the events took place, capturing the reckless desperation of youth paired with the gentle admonishment of middle age.
