What a wonderful, lovely coming of age novel. I felt so content as I turned the last page, if not a little sore in the heart with longing. I need this to be turned into a film right now

This was ok, I’m not a huge YA reader but I enjoyed this read. The characters were likable enough and I liked a lot of the background details that made up the plot. The fandom stuff wasn’t my favorite haha but definitely a fun idea. Wasn’t really a question of who she’d end up with at the end despite it seeming to try and push that throughout.

this book was nothing like what i expected. i feel like this book is marketed as a queer romance, especially since the cover includes the endgame love interest in the foreground, with the main character in the background. Also because the plot summary revolves around Elsie and her crush, and how that conflicts with her best friend slotting herself back into her life. yet those are all seemingly subplots. really, this story revolves around Elsie and her experiences with queerness, especially as it has to do with her family and her peers growing up. i understood that message from a few chapters in, because this novel is not trying to be something it’s not. once you put the expectation for romance in the background the heartfelt story really comes to light. though if you’re in the mood for a romance don’t read this book, the book is filled with love, and Elsie and Joan felt like a realistically cute couple, with a story that makes sense. if you’re a fan of heartstopper this book is one hundred percent for you.
