EDIT TW for sexual assault domestic abuse It has been brought to my attention that the author has been accused of raping and abusing her spouse a crime she has seemingly confessed to over email yet publicly denied This is the source you can also find her booking information and a much better article here thanks to Catherine for this information This article points out that though Russo has accused her ex spouse of being a terf they are in fact nonbinary and married to a trans woman Here is their go fund me I do not think rape and domestic abuse are forgivable *Crimes I Will No *I will no be reading or supporting anything by this author I went into this slightly paranoid it would be a generic Book Written To Be Important From reviews I couldn t tell if people had thought they should enjoy this book or whether they actually had But after only a half hour of the audiobook I realized this was not a book written just to educate it s a story that stands all on its own There s something very powerful about the story of a girl finally getting to be a girl finally getting to date and go to the school prom and dance and find a supportive girl gang My heart fucking felt this book the lead character Okay The main reason I liked this is because Amanda is written so well Not to be that weird person who only cares about character development again but she has suuuuuch a strong character voice I finished the book kind of in love with her and also empathizing with her so much Basically I love Amanda so much 1010 would protect her with own body Special shoutout to the audiobook narrator for adding to this effect I don t know who the hell this narrator is but she is a Talent She s also trans which I think let her nderstand the experiences far better than a cis reader might have And I have an immense crush on her southern accent I think she might be one of the reasons I fell for this so hard Go audiobook y all side characters In terms of side characters I was kind of mixed I thought Amanda Chloe Anna and Layla made a really great girl gang and I liked how supportive they were Buuuuuuuut they sort of ran together in my head I liked them a lot while reading but reviewing this I m sort of thinking of them as Religious Girl The Gay One and The One I Don t Even Remember which isn t a good sign I will say that I have super positive things to say about the love interest Grant is one of the sweetest love interests I have ever seen in YA and I liked him a lot throughout Except for a few things at the end And in the same vein there s a certain character in this book who I loved The Sublime until the ending the story progression and ending You may have noticed there were several characters I likedntil the ending soooooooo let s talk story progression and tone This starts off as a BIT of a typical YA contemporary with elements that discuss Amanda s feelings as a trans girl and weirdly that s what I liked about it It s really nice to have a story like this for trans girls one that s realistic about transphobia in the flashbacks but also not ten fucking hours of torture porn It s a super dark book but also a super hopeful book which some of you may know is my specific favorite thing in literature SPOILERS The only thing I disliked about this book really was the incredibly dark ending segment I thought this book was trying to make itself a book for trans readers to relate to and adore and I felt that way Letters Between a Catholic and an Evangelical upntil the incredibly cruel outing I will say that it was so obviously the direction the book was going so it wasn t really a surprise And I think this segment was meant as education for cis readers to really Hell Phone understand how awful life can be for trans women which is really important don t get me wrong But can I be totally honest It was really awful to read and I think it would be even awful to read for a young trans reader I don t mean this in a condescending way at all I mean I m a seventeen year old very out of the closet cis girl and I think the ending of this was one of the most difficult to read endings I have read in my whole life I honestly cannot imagine reading this as a fifteen year old closeted trans girl I do think the ending is done pretty well for what it is it ends on a super hopeful note and I respect Meredith Russo for bringingp important topics like SPOILER the rape of trans women But I couldn t shake the feeling that if this book were published in 2018 Russo would have been able to write something a bit less awful for trans readers reading this Maybe Amanda telling Grant herself Maybe her best friend not outing her to a hundred transphobic people I don t know man I just really want Amanda to have the chance to come out herself It s what.
