I loved this book sososo much, so I wrote a review. And I need you to read it. It's spoiler-free in case you haven't read the first book in this amazing queer duology. [And I really, really hope you'll read these books after reading my review!]
Once in a while, I'm all for the whimsical and magical writing only Erin Morgenstern has truly delivered on so far but.. I think that might've changed with this book? Like? HOW AMAZING IS THAT?
A story about feeling lonely, alone and trying to find a way to get heard. A story about friendship in the best possible way. A story with so much diverse rep you can't keep track of it. A story you should read.
A YA contemporary with a whole lot of darkness that struck a chord. So many subjects that are rarely spoken about or not represented often enough.. All combined in this book.
Grief is hard to read about, even more so if it's the loss of a sibling. But there's so much more to this story than just that which makes it worth reading even more so. Definitely one to pick up! But.. read my review first maybe?
Whenever there's a book with fat rep, I absolutely need to read it. Which is what I did with Dumplin'! Did I like it? Love it? Were things familiar? Find out in my review here!
I'm naturally drawn to books with queer rep but Girl Mans Up hit another cord because.. some parts sounded so very familiar to twelve-to-twenty-four year old me. On top of that, there's other tough subjects and it's an overall.. amazing book that definitely left its mark on me.
