Oh, this book. Do you want to cry? Do you want to feel queer community? Do you want to feel seen (maybe uncomfortably so)? You are loved. We are all loved. This is a beautiful book.
I read banned books whenever possible.

As a white person learning about abolitionist thought and finding ways that I can, with chronic illnesses, be part of this movement, reading this book (and listening, I read part of it via audiobook) both challenged and encouraged me. There is something to be said about firmness, unflinching truthfulness, and boundaries: they are kindness like no other. I will read this book again.
Finished! I don't think I'm going to listen to the second audiobook half of this story. I don't mind a slightly fantastical romance, but the voice acting felt overdone and the sound effects were, honestly, kind of gross.
I started this book in paperback some months back, but I have found it difficult to focus on reading physical books. I borrowed the audiobook through my library and have started listening to that today.
