If you're someone who knows how to get your hands on ARCs, it's possible you'll be able to find one. I know SORTED was featured on Net Galley so hopefully, they have a few. The good news is that September 24th is not that far off!(less)

“Great books help you understand and they help you feel understood.”

“I find myself making excuses for this kind of bullying behavior. Not everyone has been to college, learned trans 101, studied queer theory... But this is unfair to myself and other trans people. I've come to realize that understanding me isn't a matter of being an intellectual. Likewise, one doesn't have to be a radical to respect my feelings. Decent people consider how their comments affect others.”
Elliot Deline

Austin Kleon
“On the spectrum of creative work, the difference between the mediocre and the good is vast. Mediocrity is, however, still on the spectrum; you can move from mediocre to good in increments. The real gap is between doing nothing and doing something.” Amateurs know that contributing something is better than contributing nothing.”
