I will not say this adds to the YA fiction world, but it is a great addition to add to the masses. There is no new concept, there is no new plot, but there is the true voice of a teenager shining through..
This is a story of love, loss, whimsy, darkness, and biggest of all: fate.
This book is important. I need to say that before anything else. This book is a necessity in a core collection to depict and answer questions about the trans community.
I will say this. Archie is cute. I am typically not one to comment on cartoon characters, but these artists know how to draw swoon-worthy characters.
Adam Silvera slices neatly and with precision through this entire book. Slowly opening this wound in your chest. Then, he rips it open, tears out your heart, and laughs maniacally in the background.
I still don’t know if I liked it or if the ending just gave me an adrenaline rush. It was one of those books that you think about putting down from the beginning, but the story keeps drawing you in.
If you love Star Trek (especially Voyager), Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, and even the Walking Dead, this book is for you.
I think this book will be worth your while. It is an intimate display of how mental disorders effect the lives of individuals and how those individuals are normal no matter what the world likes to call them.
