Can't Take That Away | Steven Salvatore

(2021) Carey Parker is a genderqueer highschooler and Mariah Carey lamb who dreams of being a diva. Or really, being acknowledged and respected would be nice. Carey has a new boyfriend and a star role in the school musical, but also a queerphobic teacher and an incel bully. It's very YA, but I appreciated its treatment of hate as a community problem, and organized resistance as a strategy.

It has been a target of book banners.

I should probably pay attention to Mr Kelly's lecture right now, but I'm struggling to focus; I stare out over mountains blanketed in dead trees, his voice nothing but static as I follow a lone bird soaring above the Hudson river.

Oh my god so good! I might have to purchase my own copy now. The plot didn‘t really pick up until about halfway through (until then it was just romance) but I loved it so much!!!!!
