it was amazing

This book is perfectly paced, friendship- and character-driven in a way that's just right for MG readers, and handles a sometimes tricky-to-explain topic with so much finesse.

Ana's character sorts through the pressure of being a gifted skater, an increasing awareness of a single mother's financial sacrifices, and what it might mean to be non-binary, including all the layered ways these things affect family and friend relationships. The author pulls us into Ana's journey skillfully, handling the complex emotions of changing relationships and gender identity with care.

On a personal note, this is exactly the sort of book I could have benefitted from as a young reader, and I found the author's personal note at the end particularly touching. 5/5, wholeheartedly recommend.
