About the Author

Misa Sugiura’s ancestors include a poet, a priestess, a samurai, and a stowaway. She grew up in Northfield, Illinois (which is less rural than it sounds), and went to college on the East Coast. She lived in Japan for three years before moving to Silicon Valley and becoming a high school English teacher. During her years in the classroom, she met the many wonderful Asian, Latinx, and LGBTQ students who inspired her to write It’s Not Like It’s a Secret. Misa lives under a giant oak tree with her husband, two sons, two cats, and a gray-banded king snake.

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.
