So much love for this book Drag ueens mental illness some seriously witty ialogue a PoC lead and ueer characters galore this book is a must But what I love most about Fans is that it isn t afraid to turn brutal and to thrust its characters especially Sebby into a harsh light I went from laughing out loud on an airplane in the beginning of the novel to hurting for all of the characters by the end Side note I m really conflicted about something that happened in That Scene Toward The End and the way the something was or in this case wasn t ealt with Would love to privately hear someone s thoughts about itBut really Fans is excellent A seriously affecting to me anyway YA novel about three high schoolers messy and intertwined lives biracial Mira who struggles with epression gay or bisexual identification in progress Jeremy who s targeted for bullying because of his gay Conjure In African American Society dads and gay or homoromanticbisexual unclear foster kid andrug user Sebby who met Mira while they were both in inpatient mental health treatment I can t help but interpret their relationship as a shifting polyamorous triad with various levels of sexual and romantic attractionbehavior and passionate friendship between various pairs in a very teenage way where no one s ever 100% sure what s going on except they can t stand to be apart I actually really liked that ambiguity and lack of labels here as it felt appropriate to the amount of chaos and self Womens Political Activism in Palestine discovery each character wasealing with Not all of the relationship parts are healthy either which again feels appropriate to the characters It s the kind of book where you want to scoop up all the main characters in your arms give them hot chocolate and tell them everything is going to be okay and then go yell at their various parents foster parents who are fucking up and MAKE them fix everything they can So I Alien Commanders Bride (Draconians, don t know if Scelsa intended the ending to be ambiguous but I found it to be so yet I cannot help but interpret it in the most positive way possible because that s what I need from this book YMMV I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley This in no way impacted on my viewWell that wasisappointing Like most people I was originally The alphas abused mate drawn in by the first line of the synopsis This is the story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy in love with both of them However the romance was not between the three characters and was barely existence What was there between Sebby and Jeremy wasestructive and not enjoyable at all I wouldn t even say you could exactly call it a relationshipI only finished reading this book last night and already can t remember a lot of it That is not what you want from a book It was a book I forced myself to finish and Word Alchemy don t really understand why Iidn t DNF it earlier I wasn t bad in the sense that it was a chore to finish rather it was simply boring Nothing kept my attention Out of the various characters we met Mira was one of the only ones I liked and I felt she was brought The Black Renaissance in Francophone African and Caribbean Literatures down by Sebby and was better on her own Sebby was a character who for me ruined the whole book I never liked him from the get go and everything heid made me sort of hate him a little If the book was just Mira and Jeremy with their other friends I might have enjoyed it a lot I also had a majot problem with the format of the book It was split between three PoV s Mira Sebby and Jeremy which normally wouldn t bother me each one was "IN A DIFFERENT TENSE THE SPLIT "a ifferent tense split 1st 2nd and 3rd tense was so choppy and it ruined the reading experience Like I ve already said if Mira and Jeremy were the only PoV s it might not have been too bad If this is Scelsa s writing style then I m sorry to say I won t be reading any of her booksAnother thing that annoyed me when I finished the book was how many things weren t tied up or answered What s happening with Rose and Ali

But for some reason I never really connected with any of them The POVs of Mira and Jeremy weren t too bad but the way Sebby s sections were written was completely jarring and the left me feeling completely Teacher For An Alien Doctor (Intergalactic Exchange Program, disconnected from anything that happened to him His POV should have been the one that moved me most he was really going through some very tough times but I felt soistanced from him that I New Trends Generations in African Literature Today, Alt 20 didn t even come to like him that much and I struggled to see why both Mira and Jeremy were sorawn to him He was supposed to be the brightest character someone they both adored but I just The Battle over Marriage didn t feel itIidn t really believe in the romance either which was incredibly Teaching History for Justice disappointing The most realistic relationship was the friendship thateveloped between Mira and Jeremy I really felt like they cared about each other and were there for each other but I Laughing to Keep from Dying didn t feel any chemistry or romantic love between them Sebby was a bit tooistant and the way he kept so many secrets and held the others at arms length just INTERRACIAL ROMANCE didn t work for me There was also one particular scene between the three of them possibly the scene that was inspiration for the tag line that made me feel really uncomfortable it never uite felt that all three of them were on board with what was happening and it seemed like their actions sprung from too much alcohol rather than any realesire they felt I was also uncomfortable about the actions of a certain teacher he Stolen Years doesn t exactlyo anything wrong but he Sarah T - Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic definitely oversteps boundaries and I was extremely upset by the way things played out when they turned to him for help with a major problem they were having It felt a bit like it was sending a message to teenagers saying that going to an adult for help is just going to make matters worse so you re best off keeping silent and Ion t think that s a helpful message to giveI have to give Kate Scelsa kudos for having such a LA Mujer En Puerto Rico diverse cast of characters though and she reallyoes touch on some Black Visions: The Roots of Contemporary African-American Political Ideologies difficult issues We get some interesting insights intorug addiction living in foster care coping with mental health issues coming from a mixed race family having two gay parents and even uestioning your own sexuality and I Black Roots: A Beginners Guide to Tracing the African American Family Tree definitely enjoyed that about the story Unfortunately the rest of the story fell flat and itidn t really feel like any of them had achieved much by the end of the book I was hoping to see them grow up and become comfortable in their own skins but I was left feeling that they were right back where they started only this time they had become codependent on each other for their survivalThoughts before reading The story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy who falls in love with both of them It only took one line of that blurb now I HAVE to read this 25 starsI originally rated this a 35 but had to My Hero Academia memes jokes - Funny and Jokes memes book drop my rating after I thought about all the problems I had with it More extensive thoughts will be on my channel and blog The book is fucked up in all the right places and I need to process all the fuckery because hotamn Review to come This is the story of a girl her
