There was SO MUCH going on in this book! Whether or not you are a gay teenager, the author touches on issues that everyone faces, especially when it comes to grief, loss, relationships, self esteem, dreams, and belonging. Horner does this in a way that is authentic and powerful, and accessible to adults as well as teens.

Usually it takes me a while to get into the characters before I feel moved by their struggles, but I was already in tears by page 25, and I cried again and again until the end.

There were parts that went a little too quickly, but none where I thought "yeah right" or "boring". Reminded me a little bit of Shift with the bike theme, but also very different. I imagine this is a book I will go back to over time.
