Courtney “Coop” Cooper
Dumped. Again. And normally I wouldn’t mind. But right now, my best friend and source of solace, Jupiter Sanchez, is ignoring me to text some girl.

I assumed “new girl” would be synonymous with “pariah,” but Jupiter and Courtney make me feel like I’m right where I belong. I also want to kiss him. And her. Which is . . . perplexing.
The only thing worse than losing the girl you love to a boy is losing her to your boy. That means losing him, too. I have to make a move. . . .
No easy answers.
I really enjoyed Dear Martin by Nic Stone, so I was really excited to give this a go!
I had heard some mixed reviews about this book, and will say that it wasn’t really what I expected!
It was an easy read, there is a lot of dialogue and short chapters, so if you want you could probably read it in a sitting, I think I read it over a couple of days as I wasn’t exactly hooked and didn’t have a lot of time to read whenever I picked this one up. It was told from three POVs, each character getting a chunk of the book from their POV.
The message in the book was an important one I feel, I think that the way Nic Stone explored sexuality was great! Jupiter’s character goes through a bog development throughout the story and I liked following that. I feel like for teenagers or young adult, even adult who are questioning their sexuality, this book can be truly helpful as I learned some things from it myself!
There is a kind of messy love triangle in the book, it’s hard to keep up with sometimes, who had feelings for who, but doesn’t tell the other person, etc… It was definitely a complicated love triangle, I haven’t read about a love triangle in ages, I sud enjoy it, even though there was certain times I wanted to scream at the characters. The characters have no idea how to handle or express their feeling, even though I didn’t hate it I would’ve liked there to be more healthy and less complicated ways to deal with their confusion.
Overall it was an okay read, there were a few things I didn’t love, there was a bit of Biphobia from one of the characters, and few other choices made by the characters that I didn’t think were great. But I will pick up another Nic Stone book, hopefully it won’t have a messy live triangle! Ha!
