Part history of the early days of surfing, part graphic memoir about the love of the author‘s life, and the dawning realization that grief and the ocean share commonalities.

Who knew that the man who has brought so many tears of laughter to my eyes, would make me cry?

“Somewhere Only We Know” - When you get to that part, you might understand why.

I‘d been inching closer to identifying as nonbinary, but I was struggling to embrace they/them pronouns for myself. This quote made me realize that I can be nonbinary and use she/her pronouns.

So I‘m officially coming out as nonbinary. Still she/her.

Kenyazero Glad you're finding pronouns that fit right for you! It's tough feeling like you have to have the same experience as everyone else to claim a lable for yourself that you know fits you. 8mo

I Kissed Shara Wheeler | Casey McQuiston
post image
Mehso-so

I didn‘t love this one.

I was into it at first. Chloe gave me Maeve (Sex Education) vibes because she seemed to be a smart rebel who flaunted archaic rules. I was curious about Shara‘s disappearance and the scavenger hunt she sent Chloe, Smith, and Rory.

As the book progressed I realized that Chloe was just self-centered and immature and that Shara was a Regina George wannabe.

I wanted to love this book because I love the author, but alas.

This chapter broke me a bit. I‘ll post a spoiler in the comments.

WanderingBookaneer I have so many trans friends that have been hurt in love because people are just with them “in spite” of them being trans. Their hearts have been broken time and time again by people who don‘t want to date or have a serious relationship with a trans person. Iris should‘ve swallowed her pride. If she‘d really loved him, she would‘ve said the words even if he wasn‘t ready to hear them. 8mo
WanderingBookaneer Then again, he would‘ve just been devastated in a different way. 8mo

I was expecting snarky pop culture and was instead captivated by a candid, at times heartbreaking, memoir whose threads were woven throughout with iconic moments in Sapphic* pop culture.

*or moments that we perceived as Sapphic.

My own heart was bursting with pride. I remember I was on vacation in Europe and couldn‘t wait to connect to Wi-Fi to see if the protests were successful.

The day the governor, who we all knew to be a murderer (I‘m not joking: When he was a teenager he was driving drunk, killed a mother and her son, and didn‘t stay on the scene to face the consequences of his actions), was ousted tears of joy streamed down my face.

When I read books with Puerto Rican characters there will inevitably come a moment when the author writes some thing that shows me they are not as well-versed in Puerto Rican culture as they think they are. Not just that, but also that no Puerto Rican editor or sensitivity reader got their hands on the book prior to publication. It just happened with this one.

KatieDid927 I wasn‘t aware of the inconsistencies but I‘m not surprised. This book wasn‘t my fave. 8mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Ugh! I‘m so sorry, I just feel we should be better at this by now. With the internet and global connections, it‘s so easy to ask, research, get proof readers, etc. 8mo
julesG 🙈 I wonder why this keeps happening. Can't be that difficult to fact-check something in our globalised world. 8mo

TheBookHippie @julesG SERIOUSLY ! It‘s happened a lot in my reading lately! Did all the editors quit?! 8mo
julesG @TheBookHippie Probably. I've also noticed that most books have well-edited first chapters, another one in the middle and, with luck, two or three at the end. The rest, more often than not, is unedited 8mo
TheBookHippie @julesG I‘ve noticed that as well. Grammar and well known facts you can simply google are incorrect. I figure the book is unedited or I‘ve really become snobbish! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 8mo
Vansa Oh I couldn't even finish this book. The writer has long rants about injustice, colonialism and so on, but also brags about underpaying an artisan and turning a quick profit. I found it unreadable. 8mo
Vansa This happens with books set in India as well, and even by Indian writers who live abroad. Extremely irritating 8mo

I do so love picture book biographies! This one about Edwin Hubble, is no exception. I‘m embarrassed to admit that I knew nothing of the man whose name graces the famous telescope. Thankfully, this book has remedy that!

1. This is a delightful book, not just because of its darling illustrations, but also because of the story it tells.
2. Had y‘all heard of Corita Kent? I hadn‘t and I am in love with her style and how ahead of her times she was.
3. I‘m off to seek more books about her life.

kspenmoll Corita Kent painted a water tank on a highway going south of Boston - I loved passing it by when Driving to the Cape. 8mo

This is my favorite type of book to use at my middle school classes: Twelve students present science-fair style presentation on a variety of topics that affect Native Nations. This book serves as a springboard for anyone who wants to learn more about these topic.

I didn‘t love this one, but I just realized it may be because this is where the story starts. We don‘t get to see any of the journey that led him to the realization that he is trans and the reader is dropped into this world where he starts to come out, his girlfriend outs him, and he faces a transphobic bully—all while navigating his Senior year of high school.
