When shopping for presents for Violet sometimes Max tends to be a little selfish, “that might be more a present for me,” I admit. The bikini is black and nothing but strings and a few triangles of fabric." There was one scene with Gavin and Max that I really liked and it was when Max handed the phone over to Gavin so he could talk to Violet, “mmm. Did you just make a date with her? And what if I wanted to say goodbye?” I really enjoyed this book, loved Max.
