One for the Birds by Lily Mitchell

In One for the Birds (2016), Lily Mitchell gives you surrealism, betrayal and some macabre situations in which the main characters find themselves lost or trapped. But that’s not all.

Certainly one of the greatest books of all time. It never fails to make me laugh, cry and ponder in equal measures.
