I really enjoyed that this was such a different book to what I ordinarily read! I did think Franny had mental health issues, but given her family history, how could she not have so much unresolved trauma?? I agree that it seemed strange for most animal species to be dying out but nothing else was really highlighted to make it truly feel apocalyptic. I’m glad there was Franny’s additional backstory- this helped me to stay invested to find out what really happened. The ending was terribly sad, but I’m glad it ended with her father, giving all her pain some redemption.
