This was very interesting but it didn't flow well from chapter to chapter and there was too much repetition

I read this to learn more about disability justice, which I did, but I also learned different ways of thinking about caring for myself and others. I definitely want to reread this later.

An interesting and thought-provoking read which I deeply appreciated. I often feel like I read Own-Voices novels where it either articulates something I have always felt, or reiterates a thought which I have expressed myself. This was a welcome difference. This is an Own Voices novel which broaches themes specific to a POC perspective. I appreciated being educated on this lived expertise whilst also checking the ways I need to pursue further education on my own. You continue thought and discussion after this book ends and that is the foundation of continued dreaming.

This book may have just changed my life. It was so validating to read, and inspiring as to what community care work is possible, and how to make political organising spaces more sustainable and nourishing. Leah speaks to generational hurts and uniquely modern struggles.
