When she finally tells her new friends her real name at the end of the book, it is such a wonderfully honest moment of Fereshteh being true to herself after so much effort to fit in with her mostly white peers. As a German myself, I know what our accent sounds like, and the version in the audiobook was nothing like it.

Books That See Us is an ongoing series of book reviews where Salt and Sage Books editors and sensitivity readers share representation done well. So many YA novels point out clearly when a character is not white and British, however Angel’s faith was blended in to the story so well. Once we get to the day of the concert, the novel becomes more serious as the characters grapple with the ugly side of fame and the public eye.I Was Born For This has that signature Oseman writing style that manages to capture an authentic teenage voice in a refreshingly unique way. i'm filipino-american, i'm pan, and i love reading and reviewing books a totally unreasonable amount. Overall, I Was Born For This is a beautiful story about friendship and fandom which is as educational as it is enjoyable and effortless to read. I mean there happens a lot that’s off screen and we never get to see it but if they really feel like they’re a fraud that would make me kind of sad.

A lot of the time, people will expect to take more than you are willing to give, and this book really shines a light on the importance of learning and knowing your limits. I was reminded of my NSYNC days when reading this, remembering how I collected their merch and thought that going to one of their concerts was the greatest moment of my life at the time.This is why representation matters: in another universe I would have just picked Lister and my list of favorite characters would more and more cis and just a tiny bit queer. It’s be a long while since I’ve come away so intensely invested in a contemporary young adult novel, and this one hit me hard. Or well, even with my kid I’d probably invite them over to my flat and give them a safe space to crash and to calm down. The first lives and breathes for the sake of her favorite music band, The Ark, where Jimmy is the main vocalist. Refreshing and wonderful and I already want to read it again, so if you haven't already added it to your list you should definitely keep an eye out when it's released on May 3rd.

I Was Born for This really made me feel something while I was reading, and I was pulled into the storyline; I just haven’t been that invested in a contemporary literature for a very long time. I Was Born for This is a stunning reflection of modern teenage life, and the power of believing in something – especially yourself. Now Jimmy is my precious son, I can go to lengths to protect him, dare say anything about him and I will break your teeth.Angel is similarly obsessed with “The Ark”, a three-member boy band from England who are just starting to become internationally recognized in this novel.

He has a bit of a hard time opening to Rowan and Jimmy, mostly because he feels the third wheel on a two-way friendship. Review: So before we start lets lay out a few trigger warnings there’s alcohol abuse, panic attacks, and discussion of depression and suicide; mental illness is a key feature of the book. This is a book club, hosted by four Asian book reviewers, dedicated to boosting marginalized voices and celebrating diverse books, while always focusing on authors of color!Rowan’s girlfriend, Bliss, has got to be my favorite character - she is the hilarious icon I needed in my life, and her arc around her relationship with Rowan is fantastic. Alice Oseman's book 'A Heartstopper novella NICK AND CHARLIE' was a Sunday Times bestseller w/c 04-07-2022. Her webcomic Heartstopper has been translated into several languages, and Oseman recently announced she’d sold its rights and that a TV show is on its way. The third novel by the phenomenally talented Alice Oseman, the author of the 2021 YA Book Prize winning Loveless , Solitaire and graphic novel series Heartstopper – now a major Netflix series. Then she meets Michael Holden, and they try to unmask the mysterious Solitaire (and survive A-Levels) in Alice Oseman's stunning, unflinching honest debut novel, which first introduced her fan-favourite Heartstopper characters Nick and Charlie.
