The long-awaited follow-up to Melt, Signs of Life, continues to follow Joey and Dorothy after the events in Melt. We get to see how a powerful decision affected them, how one lost their way and how the other is trying to find theirs. Signs of Life recounts events that changed their lives with biting consequences in unflinching detail and lyrical prose that will keep readers on their toes until the very last sentence. You can tell that Selene Castrovilla poured her soul into these characters to tell their story and it shines in this harrowing yet hopeful tale. I was surprised by the direction the story took and I can’t wait to see where they go in the next installment. I hope for only the best for these characters that have wormed their way into my heart. For now, enjoy a few lit memes I made just for the book below!
