A review by romancelandias
Switchback by Danika Stone


I really enjoyed this one! It's the first book I've ever read where a POV character is both aromantic AND asexual. I liked how sure of her sexuality Vale was. Not that I don't appreciate questioning queer characters, but it's nice to read queer characters who KNOW who they are and put a specific label to it. I also loved her friendship with Ash, the other POV character and her best friend. He was super supportive and respectful of her boundaries and he was also adorably geeky and a huge gamer. I loved him. The survival aspect of the story was exciting and nerve wracking, although I did have to wonder how realistic it was that they seemed to run into every single animal they could possibly come across in the woods. But who knows, maybe the Canadian wilderness is just more dangerous!
