I have never seen myself in a character more than I have with Frances. Her and Aled's friendship is my favourite thing in the world.

damn man wth 


some points off because after what felt like a falling action going at 500 miles per hour, the ending slammed the brakes. Although the book is awesome and it the ending leaves u wanting a bit more.

There are many things I love about this book but the number one spot is definitely the fact that it is Frances’s and Aled’s friendship that is the backbone of the plot. Not romance being the emotional carrier but friendship. One would have thought that 22 years into the 21st century it wouldn’t be a revolutionary move but it is. Especially when one of them is in the relationship so the focus could be swayed in that direction but it wasn’t. Alice Oseman, I can’t even begin to describe how much I love you for giving us books like this. Diverse voices (whoop whoop for another ace-spec rep), friendship at the forefront, figuring out yourself and your priorities outside of society’s expectations. Thank you

This book was so incredible! I find a lot of the time that authors make mental illnesses sound terrifying and while I know that they aren’t sunshine and butterflies it’s nice to see it in a way that doesn’t give you nightmares. This book was absolutely incredible especially if you really love side characters stories!
