Quality literature exemplifies how a powerful, emotional, and well written story should exist, and causes the reader to think about their own life decisions. My Life as a Traitor throws the reader deep into a world of fear and pain that will stay in their mind for a long time due to emotionally vivid storytelling blended with excellent writing that creates an atmosphere and a sense of self-desperation not often seen in modern books.
