This book made me feel splendiferous I received a copy by the Author for a honest reviewThere are books that have abusive homophobic or sexist characters which although raise important uestions don't address them and that makes me strongly dislike those authors and booksThis is not one of those books it raises so many uestions but directly confronts them in the best way possible here is a really good example roughly a uarter through the book“ “Am I the word that Pop said Faggot” I bite my lip so hard I taste blood My hatred for Frank this moment is a towering inferno “No Never There’s nothing you could do to make you that word It’s a mean nasty word that mean and nasty people use to tear someone down and make them feel bad That’s all Okay” “Okay but people at school say that word to me too ’Cause I like pink and sparkly things ’Cause I cry sometimes They say I like boys” I want to beat the snot out of every kid in his school I don’t care how young they are They’re old enough to know better I want to shake Aaron and tell him he has to be tougher stronger harder but his sweet little face is looking up at me and I just can’t bring myself to do it “You are good Just like this Whatever you want to be is just fine It doesn’t matter if you like boys or pink sparkles or wear purple polka dotted skirts to school every day Okay No one has a right to treat you like crap” The corners of his mouth tilt into a tiny smile “Will you hold my hand” I lace my fingers through his They are still so small so delicate I swallow hard “Tonight you need to stay in your room Don’t come out okay” He nods I hold his hand all the way home in the crackling silence The dread creeps up my throat strangling my breath ”If that doesn't make you love this book to bits and pieces I don't know what will oh maybe it's the incredibly well written characters that sometimes have scenes that make me just feel good inside all the wit and sass included“ “Keep rolling your eyes” I mutter “Maybe someday you’ll find a brain back there” Lucas laughs ”“ You said Jasmine was a ‘loathsome toad’ I said to myself ‘here’s a girl She’s creative with her words just like me’ And I just knew” He shrugs grinning sheepishly”The characters in this book are so well written I can find myself relating to people who seemingly have absolutely nothing in common with me They all seem real which is something I rarely see in books latelyThe story seems to come in two arcs or rather you can stop reading the book at roughly the halfway point view spoilerso just before our protagonist shoots her father hide spoiler
