There's a lot going on in this story that centers bisexual Chinese-British teen Elsie. She has several potential love interests, and I was confused for a while about which was the actual crush. There's a sort of mystery subplot that's kind of sweet. All-in-all, though, not my favorite LGBTQ YA caper.
