Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Buoyed by tenderness and humor amid moments of deep pain…An open-hearted expression of love in its many forms.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Although parts of the story are heartbreaking and heavy, they are balanced with humor and hope, giving queer teens of color opportunities to see joy and love reflected back to them…Enthusiastically recommended for all collections.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Narrator Avi Roque’s light, husky voice brings both warmth and gravity to Jules’s first-person narration, keeping listeners invested even when times get tough. Roque also displays vocal versatility, particularly during conversations among Jules and his friends wherein each character’s voice is recognizable amid…casual switches between English and Spanish. Altogether, it’s a moving and genuine listening experience.” AudioFIle
