If you read the first book in the series and you're trying to decide whether to keep going, DO IT! The second book starts slow but interesting, and then takes off. Loved it.

Absolutely wonderful book! Fantastic representation, autistic main character, non-binary character who uses neopronouns! And the world-building is absolutely fantastic! It’s a beautiful sequel to Failure to Communicate and I would highly recommend.
