A review by jennrid
Almost Flying by Jake Maia Arlow


I really enjoyed this read! I loved the way the author framed Dalia’s story around actual roller coasters, as they are such an a propos analogy to all the ups and downs, thrilling, fear inducing feelings that she experiences through the book: her relationship with her dad, the “loss” of her best friend, the discovery of her soon-to-be instant family, and her awakening to not only her first crush but also to her queer feelings.
