About this deal

This is a book with a diverse biracial cast, lots of bisexual representation, and (thankfully) not many romantic subplots or devices. i used to be active across many fandoms, and this book characterises both being in fandoms, and other people's reactions, perfectly. Alice was named the Attitude Person of the Year 2023, and The British Book Awards Illustrator of the Year. I’ve heard countless incredible things about this story, and I found not knowing anything about this story going in to it was the best thing to do. He tries, he tries so hard, but there are slips and cracks and not the best coping methods he could use.

There’s no Jowan, but I really adored their interactions and how much they seemed to care about each other. I kinda liked the scene when Mac confronted Angel about being a “fandom celebrity” because *lol* that’s me whenever some of my GR friends claim that I’m popular on here.Sometimes you’ll be stuck together for weeks but you don’t care because as long as you’re together and making music everything is alright. There are two things I like to say when talking about Alice Oseman’s I was born for this: it is not only good trans representation, it has the right amount of chaotic bisexuality I needed in my life. But when she meets the creator of her favourite podcast, a whole new world opens up - and studying may not be a part of it. With the new possibilities for the band, his attacks are worse and the pressure which lies on him like an elephant makes it so much worse that he even considers to stop making music to stay sane.

Just because they’re young doesn’t mean their lives are less meaningful, and in fact it means they undergo so much more change and growth as a result. And I know that people actually do that in 2018, but it is so gross that it honestly just made me want to take a hot shower and scrub my skin every time Angel and Juliet would talk about it.Her YA novels have been nominated for the YA Book Prize, the Inky Awards, the Carnegie Medal, and the Goodreads Choice Awards. Alice's style grows with her books, and with us, and I can hear her characters' voices as clearly as if they were my own friends talking to me at college.
