This book is insane! And by insane I mean powerful, beautiful, and absolutely incredible. I read this book in two days and once I completed it I immediately wanted more! (I almost read it over again) McSmith did a terrific job emphasizing the LGBTQIA issues at hand as well as bullying, and Perfectionism. Pony and Georgia feel so real and in some ways relatable they make you want to have a deep conversation with every character in this book. I am not one to cry during books, but twords the end of this one when Pony is getting beat up, and Georgia comes to se him at the hospital, and what she does for him after, almost made me cry! I love this book soooooo much!!!

I loved this book so much. The author makes it so you can’t help but cry at the ending. So good!

A fantastic read - We did host Tobly McSmith here in Ottawa, but I was thrilled as well to read this book which is a romance between Pony and Georgia, but also contains so much else. It's such a good read, and that ending is both heartbreaking and wonderful. This is one of my fave YA novels this year.

This book makes you open your eyes and heart to people who are transgender. It was a book that I could read a 100 times. This book will make you happy,sad,and blessed.
