2.5 stars

as an actual bisexual woman who's been a victim of fatphobic bullying her entire life and suffers from pcos, i'm genuinely upset at some of the shoddy representation in this book.

review to come? i'm still fuming about some of the rep, so we'll see

representation: gay mc, bi li, bi side character, plus sized side character with pcos, non-white main and side characters

content warnings: biphobia, fatphobia, homophobia, death of a family member

62.0% "i’m genuinely fuming the first time i’m reading about a character with pcos like me is in a book that excuses fat shaming because the mc feels more sorry for the fat shamer and her repressed sexuality. my opinion of this just gets worse and worse"
