Though at times you might feel that book is not grammatically correct with tenses used at few occasions, I also felt that editing can be improved but their is a positive which is to be taken out that it is plot which you can connect and relate yourself.
The book is also informative as it provides depth to the medical issues, and that’s a real positive since books are not to be written just by English language but also by in depth and to the point the research which is very important and that’s why I rate this book very highly in that regard as it also touches the emotions very well along with proper knowledge.
The cover as per story is good for a kindle book.
Novel sends out an strong message of believing in ourselves in tough situations, though there are grammatical issues but the language is still fluent and convenient to read.
I will rate it ⭐⭐⭐⭐/🖐️.
