I really wanted to like this book! It was part of my June LGBT reads and I had so much expectation for it and it let me down. The title of the book kind of doesn't fit with the story. It's pretty much a secret for most of the book. The one thing I have to give to this book is that the intersectionality was fantastic, and the representation was so diverse. I think we need more books with this sort of representation in YA today and it is so important to have that for not only young adults, but adults as well.

This book was spectacular. It showed a lovely LGBT+ relationship and also addressed several race issues. Sana (the main character) could make some choices that strayed from being "realistically imperfect" and got to be "unrealistically stupid," but overall the characters were realistic and very easy to relate to.

A wonderful story that hints on destroying prejudices and stereotypes. About a girl coming to accept the changes in her life for better or worse, making mistakes, finding oneself and love with a great message.
