Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
I read this one just recently (which why October Best of the Year lists will always get a side-eye from me, but I digress). I’d been hearing good things about it, and it lived up to them. Gabi’s voice makes this one, her anxieties, strengths, and all. I’m from a different culture and generation, and yet it also rang very true to what being a teenage girl feels like.
