This story follows the life of Biz, a teenaged girl. Biz lives with her family, goes to school, explores her sexuality and navigates the rough waters of growing up, as well as often talking with her father—her dead father.
There is so much to love about this book.
The writing. The writing is gorgeous. This is not a book you want to rush through. It should be savored.
Biz is a fantastic character. She struggles with mental illness which is handled in a very realistic way. She also struggles to label her sexuality. Does she like girls? Boys? Both?
I really was able to identify with Biz, and was able to really get inside her head. The other characters were also amazing. I don’t want to spoil too much, so I’m just going to say that the plot was great, the pacing was great, plus the cover is beautiful. What are you waiting for? Go read it!!!
