Ron (he/they) is a grad student and co-hosts the book review podcast Something Old, Something Debut.
April is a 23 year old bisexual with a fear of commitment who very much does not have her life together. She is also the voice of reason in Earth's first alien contact.
April and her friend group are witty, insightful, and extremely dysfunctional people doing their best to push for hope and positivity in a rapidly changing world. This book is thought provoking, laugh out loud funny, and even had me on the edge of my seat at times -- especially at the end.
"They don't die in this one"- The official tagline for this book!
Featuring a protagonist with rheumatoid arthritis and a love interest with Gaucher disease, this Jewish teen romance is full of fabulous disability representation and warm, fuzzy, good vibes.
A fantastic debut with an Asian, Jewish, nonbinary main character! As a nonbinary reader who also figureskated at Ana's age, and struggled with many of the issues addressed in this book, I would've LOVED to have a book like this. Perfect for any kid figuring out their own gender, or interested in learning more. Also great for any young figureskaters looking to read a book about their sport!
Awesome autistic representation that spits in the face of abelist misconceptions.
