    4.5 stars- A poignant tale of light in darkness

    This is my first book by Suki Fleet, but most certainly won’t be the last. I don’t know that I’d term Foxes a true romance. Though you can classify it as a YA/NA romance, it’s less romance and more a novel about a young adult who lives on the cold London streets. There’s a romantic connection, but I think it almost sells the book short to focus solely on that aspect. Foxes is told entirely in the first person point of view from the perspective of the protagonist, Danny. I had difficulty adjusting to the awkward timing and pace of the writing at first. It seemed both descriptive and hesitant. However, as Danny’s personality developed I realized this stylistic choice was brilliant. The tone mirrors Danny’s thoughts, incredibly observant but slightly scattered. Danny is a complex character who doesn’t processes competing experiences and emotions fluidly. Using this narration and writing style allowed the reader to be more empathetic, experiencing the world as Danny did. I found Danny’s character really well developed. I liked how Miss Fleet steadily exposed his personality, history, and concerns to the reader rather than thrust them into the open. It kept my interest in the book, but also fit with his character and kept with the slow build of the book. I also enjoyed how his urge to protect and fix those around him went beyond his love interest and close friends. It gave his character depth and made this so much more than a love story. His story was one of hope and light even in the most troubling, dreary circumstances. The romance was a slower burn. I liked the contrast of Micky and how both boys helped one another fill in the pieces they struggled with. They lent each other strength and gave them something to strive for. For me, this is what made the entire book less of a romance, but more of a study of Danny’s, and to a lesser degree Micky’s, growth. The conflicts the characters face were hard and often difficult to read about. The primary and secondary characters live on the streets, with some selling themselves to make enough to scrape by. The writing was gripping and exposed many raw emotions, which made it both poignant and hard to read because it was so honest and heartbreaking. There were many times my stomach would drop with what Danny or his friends faced, and times I’d have to set the e-reader down to quiet the torrent of emotions swirling inside. I think readers who like gritty stories that have a strong emotional connection will enjoy this book. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
