This book was... kind of a lot. I loved just how unrepentant it was about what it was, how much it didn't try to be palatable or to be "good rep". In fact, I love just how "bad rep" Reese is. All the characters felt very real, as much as sometimes I thought their choices weren't realistic. But everything came together in the last chapter. I also really liked the flashbacks to Amy and Reese's relationship, and the frank discussion of detransitioning and how it can happen for various reasons. How frank the book was spoke to me too; the unhealthy views of womanhood many women (cis and trans alike) have, dissociation during sex, et al.

A queer romp with plenty of big questions and no interest in giving us answers.

challenging emotional hopeful
This book is absolutely worth the hype. A very cleverly written, thought-provoking exploration of womanhood, parenthood and queerness. I loved Reese's voice and her relationship with Ames and Katrina.
