This was my most anticipated 2022 release and I'm so happy to say that it did not disappoint! Casey McQuiston's characterization skills continue to be unmatched and, although I was nervous to read YA from them, I really enjoyed this one. The coming-of-age vibe was very well done and I was left wanting to give each and every one of the characters a hug by the end! Although I wasn't the biggest fan of the plot itself, the character growth, especially within the supporting characters, will have a lasting impact on me. I will say that if you are going into this one wanting it to be another romance-heavy book, I would proceed with caution - I personally consider this more of a contemporary with a heavy emphasis on friendships and relationship with self.

This truly was the coming-of-age novel that I wish I would've had in my hands growing up, and I'm so glad that it exists for younger generations as it discusses heavy topics such as sexuality, religious bigotry, and the societal pressures to be "perfect" that many of us face in our day-to-day lives (and with a diverse cast of characters? YES PLEASE!!)

I truly can't recommend this one enough :)
