This was a 5 star story hidden behind 3 star writing. The writing didn't 'flow' so much, as it was delivered like facts in a news story. Almost jumpy and disconnected.

While the idea was intriguing, the writing, pacing, and pretty much everything was disappointing in its quality. Author included a lot of random facts that had no pertinence to the story, dialogue was stilted and she told rather than showed. I'm glad that it exists, as a lesbian focused novel, but parts of me wish that the quality of these books were better already.

This book was amazing! It made me laugh, and it made me cry. It was never predictable, and was very wonderfully put together. I love this artist, and would love to read more of their books! I would definately reccommend it to anyone!
