Teo liked Gertrude who was a corpse. The students weren’t at ease around Teo.The Anatomy lab was his domain. He often tried to think of Gertude- as that is the name ofthe female corpse they were working with- before she died. She had been in her sixties or seventies. Teo had actually wished he could kill one of the female students who he felt had disrespected Gertrude. But he wasn’t a murderer or monster, But even as a child he just lived as he didn’t like anyone or have feelings for anyone or miss anyone. He was also still the same way or so he thought. Then Teo realized it was the end of the semester and he would never see Gertrude againand he was alone … once again. Teo lived with his mother Patricia who was ina wheelchair and Marli was Patricia’s neighbor and best friend. She did help Patricia with some things like a shower. Then Patricia forced Teo to go to a birthday party with her and there he met Claire. His shoulder had tingled where she had touched it. Claire is the opposite of Teo. Claire is working on a screenplay called Perfect Days. Teo finally feels and falls in love which turns into obsession. Claire doesn’t love Teo like he feels she should so then he kidnaps her and goes on a roadtrip with Claire. I am not really sure how I felt about this book. It was a unique storythat is for sure and I have read alot of books. I’m on the borderline on how much I liked this story so that is why it’s a three. It did have good twists especially Teo not feeling for most of his like then he finds himself in love even if it turned into obsession. Anyway i didn’t hate this just on the fence about it. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
