This was a really fantastic book to finish off 2019 with. It's one of those contemporaries that feels unafraid -- even though such a central theme of it literally is fear. The fear of people who condemn and who are ignorant and how dangerous and ruining they can be to the vulnerable. This is about sex and a girl who's positive for HIV, and it's also about complex female friendships, the softest family feels, musical theatre, and the messiness of being a teen. I also appreciated the queer-questioning thread woven through it. Like there was just such a lot in this book, and it all felt handled so well!!!

Simone made a ton of immature decisions, but she is an actual teen and oh if she wasn't so relatable for it. I also loved her dynamics with her two gay dads, the adoption discussions, the #ownvoices black rep, and how fierce (in good AND bad ways) her friendship was with Claudia and Lydia. Who were both gay!! Like the book is so gay!! So happy here. (Claudia was also ace!) It is very sex-centric, intensely so, and I was just 😂am too ace myself for this.

Definitely an important and addictively readable contemporary to add to your TBR!
