4. YAY LGBTQ characters! There are some LGBTQ+ supporting roles in this novel which are so cute. I totally ship, Maya's best friend, Dave with Xander. THEY ARE SO CUUUUUTE. There are also nods towards other LGBTQ+ people as well, so THANK YOU Kenneally for all ze diversity!
My only gripe is that I felt like I predicted most things that were going to happen in this novel from the very beginning, but in the end, it's not a huge deal for me because of how brilliant all the other components were.
Miranda Kenneally's contemporaries are the ultimate reads for the summer, and Jesse's Girl is no exception with it's amazing cast of people.
~Thank you Sourcebooks Fire for the review copy!~
"Yeah, yeah, I'm from Tennessee, where its a crime if you don't love country, but I deep, rumbling beats and singing loud and fast and hard. I do not like closing my eyes and crooning to a cow in the pasture."
"A guy who clearly loves singing, who loves performing, and puts so much emotion and love into his songs—why would he quit? Give up something that is his whole world? The reason has to be big as life, right?" (eARC, Loc 587)
"I know you'd make me feel better, Maya Henry.' [...] "Family's not always blood." (Loc 1973)
