Wow, what a damn good book. When I heard about this book, I was worried that this would be like another Stay Gold. Not a bad book, but not one I enjoyed. It crammed too many hard topics in it and then held up themes I strongly disagree with up as a great thing. So, I was happy that this book wasn't like that. It was overall hopeful and happy. Did it have dark and hard themes? Hell yes. But it was handled right and with a very satisfying conclusion.

This took me a long time to get through and that's not the book's fault. That was a me thing. I wanted to have my full attention to annotate and I got half way and I just ran out of steam and I hit a brick wall emotionally so I had to put it down for a month or so. Eventually I bought the audiobook and just finished it on my daily commute to work. 

This deals with a lot of queer trauma and you have get through a lot of it in order to get to the happy, hopeful ending and because of that, it's not going to be for everyone and that's absolutely fine.
