Everybody go right now and listen to the podcast this book will be based on, The Bright Sessions. I promise you won't regret it. It's literally just about people with superpowers going to therapy and I love it with all my heart. It features LGBTQ+ rep, mental health rep and characters you can't help but fall in love with. Also the superpowers. What more could you ask for?

*ARC received from NetGalley in return for an honest review*

Before I start this review I have to say that I have never listened to the podcast that this is based on. I just went into this book expecting a cute gay romance which I got. The first 70% of the book was really cute and then things turned a little ugly. As someone who has been in therapy most of their lives, it was really disturbing to see these teens stalking a therapist's office to see who the other patients might be. Currently, I j

I received this book early in exchange for an honest review.

This book's ideas caught my attention immediately. It is the general gay teen book but with the twist of the supernatural added, something that can only make it better. That being said all gay teen books I have read seem to be missing something I cannot put my finger on and this book is no different. While the supernatural element adds to the plot it seems to be missing a crucial element to make it a 5 star book.

4/4
Okay, I love the world of X-men or a world where humans have special abilities and power. It is just fascinating to see how far science can go if given the proper green light when it comes to experimenting with humans. One of my favorite part of the book was the way Caleb's "superpowers" were described. I was struggling with him, especially, when it is happening to a high school student. Seriously, it's the worst time for such ability to become aware to Caleb. The way emotions were described

I love this story so much. I'm so glad I came across this book on Netgalley, and that I decided to listen to the Bright Sessions podcast after reading the description. Some of the book was stuff I had already listened to because of the podcast, but I loved being able to read the behind the scenes stuff in real time, instead of just hearing Caleb recount them in his therapy sessions like in the podcast. I think this book may be a little confusing for someone who hasn't listened to the podcast, bu ...more

3.5 stars!

This book, at first, had me thinking I might not enjoy it. I honestly just don't relate to football or sports and Caleb, one of the main characters, was just very jock at first. But as I read on, I realized that I really enjoyed their story. I think this book also fills a gap in the YA market as a book that boys will relate to.

It was a bit slow at times, and I wanted more from the Atypical plot than I got. But overall, a really good story!

Merged review:

A really enjoyable podcast that can be listened to during breaks since episodes are short, but you'll want to binge read! I liked that there was a transcript too, helped to follow and calculate page count.

The Bright Sessions follows Dr. Bright in her therapy sessions with Atypical humans. In the first season, there were 3 patients: Sam, Caleb and Chloe. I liked all of them! They all want to get better and are emotionally resilient. As time goes on, we get more
