I’m so happy with the trans YA novels I’ve been reading lately, including this one. Justice and Spencer are precious together and I’d really love to see what happens next. I appreciated how supportive almost everyone was and the diversity of the characters. Some folks might argue it’s unrealistic, but a) it’s a novel and b) queer trans POC youth deserve to have stories like this.
