This is so much better than the first book. Darius is such a relatable character, as is what he goes through in this book.

trigger warnings: depression, suicide mention, homophobia, racism, bullying, transphobia mention, body dysmorphia, fat shaming, sexual content mention, refugee mention, death of family member, cancer mention, grief

I didnt expect the second book to hit has hard as the first one did but here I am driving to work crying over the last few chapters. 

Such an incredible duology and a strong follow up to a stunning first book.

While some the best gay representation I've seen, I found the pace of the book a bit slow and the plot difficult to summarise.
