WOW. A brilliant celebration of queer identity, feminism, Boricua pride, and how to move forward when our idols fail us. It's a story of self love and finding community, and it's empowering as hell. Gabby Rivera put her heart and soul into this book - it'll stick with you long after you're done.
This is the feel-good queer trans soccer romance we've been waiting for!!Fresh starts. Teammate crushes. Loving parents. Unexpected allyship. And most importantly: trans joy.I loved this book.
I love fairytale/mythology retellings, so from the beginning I expected to enjoy this reimagining of Homer's Iliad, as told from Patroclus' perspective. I didn't expect to fall in love with this quiet and gentle story about legacy and how we choose to honor the ones we love. If you're on the fence about it, jump off and pick it up!
I love this book! It is perfect and wonderful for a time when things seem to be falling apart. It has the quick sarcastic wit of The West Wing, the romantic charm of Prince Harry fan fic, and a whole lot of gay. What more could you want??
