However, with the bumps ahead, she discovers what a good life actually entails.
1. Realistic Teen Lesbian Representation. Holland and Cece act, think, and speak like teens. The only difference is that they are lesbians. No one’s a martyr or oversexed. They are allowed to be actual people and not uber-caricatures.
2. Reality Ensues. When Holland comes out, she (view spoiler). No apple pie treatment. Just reality.
3. Quick. Engaging. Funny at times. Heartbreaking in other moments.
4. Engaging characters. Peters writes realistic characters. From the sweet to the heartless, she encompasses possible humans we would see in our lives.
1. Cover. Not a fan. But, hey, I’m not a book cover designer.
Overall, Peters presents another tale for LGBTQA readers and non-alike to enjoy, especially in June, which is Pride month for LGBTQA folks.
