From the critically acclaimed author of Lies We Tell Ourselves comes an emotional empowering story of what happens when love may not be enough to conquer allToni and Gretchen are the couple everyone envied in high school They've been together forever They never fight They’re deeply hopelessly in love When they separate for their first year at college—Toni to Harvard and Gretchen to NYU—they’re sure they’ll be fine Where other long distance relationships have fallen apart theirs is bound to stay rock solidThe reality of being apart though is very different than they expected Toni who identifies as genderqueer meets a group of transgender upperclassmen and immediately finds a sense of belonging that has always been missing but Gretchen struggles to remember who she is outside their relationshipWhile Toni worries that Gretchen won’t understand Toni’s new world Gretchen begins to wonder where she fits in Toni's life As distance and Toni’s shifting gender identity begins to wear on their relationship the couple must decide—have they grown apart for good or is love enough to keep them together?

    This might be my most disappointing read of 2015 I have been so excited for this book There are so few books out there about people who identify as genderqueer that I couldn't wait for this book to be available But it did so many things wrongFirstly I knew early on that this wasn't going to get than three stars It read like a textbook or essay discussing and informing the reader about being transgender and being genderqueer The story itself about Toni and Gretchen's relationship was weak and underdeveloped Starting with instalove and never growing into anything that interesting it merely served as a platform for the issues to be discussed But that wasn't a completely bad thing either I would have given this three stars if it educated teens about people so rarely represented in YAThere were many discussions about the fluidity of gender and language I found this latter particularly interesting and enjoyed learning about the ways language has changed to incorporate LGBTQIA individuals and words like sexism and homophobia But the book started to really go downhill when it began to completely misrepresent what it means to be genderqueerYou can read many blog posts and articles by people who identify as genderqueer you can watch videos by those who are genderqueer and hear firsthand what they have to say about it But to summarize being genderqueer means that you do not identify with masculinity or femininity you do not simply fall into either box This might be because you fall somewhere between the two having both traditionally masculine and feminine gender traits Or it might be because you find yourself somewhere outside the expectations of eitherIt is not however a transition period in which you decide which gender you belong to And it annoys me so much that this book suggests genderqueer people are those who haven't made their minds up which gender they want to be That is NOT true Just like bisexual people are not those who simply haven't decided whether they like girls or boys yetBut that's not all that bothered meI hated the disdain for every white heterosexual person in the book Both Toni and Gretchen comment on this Gretchen doesn't want to be straight because it's so normal and Toni comments on her roommates all being non white but is relieved she brings some LGBT diversity Sexuality and gender identity are not fashion statements It's not about being cool Bloody hellMy issue with this isn't because I feel so sorry for all the poor white heterosexual people it's because it sells the right wing misconception that gay or transgender people have disdain for straight cisgender people It's so stupid And so wrongI think the only straight cisgender character in the book that isn't mean is Toni's little sister Audrey Seriously I'm not exaggerating The others are viewed like this Joanna gets up at six in the morning to start a ninety minute hair care regimen and Felicia wears designer high heels every day even though they always get caught in the sidewalks Joanna and Felicia are the ultimate gender conformists Neither of them has the right to talk about feminism until they stop posting pictures of themselves in bikinis Because feminists can't possibly want to be attractive and take pictures of themselves in bikinis right? WrongI'm also confused about the decision to have Gretchen befriend a homophobic transphobic guy who calls Toni a shemale I thought it was going to be part of a lessonmessage the book was imparting but nope she just decided she liked himThis book was just a complete mess I'm so so disappointed I really am We need books with genderqueer characters just not like thisBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Pinterest
