-'What did you expect?'

-'I don't know. a fuss?'

-'what, like fireworks and streamers and unicorns draped with Pride flags?'

-'Sort of, yeah'

-'Well...I kind of suspected you were coming out today, considering how much of a flap you got in on the phone...so I baked a rainbow cake. Is that gay enough for you?'

Hayley Anderton makes the characters alive. It revolves around everyday difficulties that teenagers nowadays face; family, friends and surrounding peers. It deals about acceptance, towards yourself and people around you. It moves you. Definitely keeps you turning the pages as you uncovers the characters inside. A beautiful story definitely worth reading. Thumbs up to the writer!!

One of the most common problems with YA LGBT fiction is that the writer tends to assign various clichés to their characters. I absolutely love how Anderton didn’t do that. Each conversation seemed so authentic that, at times, I felt like I was eavesdropping on normal people at a local pub.
She tackles a big theme as well: living a lie vs. being true to one’s self. This is a common trope of LBGT literature, but Anderton handles it like a pro and engaged me from the start.

D'aww, this was an adorable read!

A story of self-discovery and acceptance, Double Bluff tackles some pretty serious issues, but at no point does it feel angsty or heavy. I loved the focus on friendship, and the dialogue was fabulous - ofttimes *lol* funny.

Anderton loves her characters, she's given them a lot of care and attention, and it shines through!

There are, sadly, a few errors and inconsistencies that did irk me a little. I couldn't not mention this, but also they'
