Toni and Gretchen are the couple everyone envied in high school. They've been together forever. They never fight. They're deeply, hopelessly in love. When they separate for their first year at college--Toni to Harvard and Gretchen to NYU--they're sure they'll be fine. The reality of being apart, though, is very different than they expected.

I appreciated that the book addressed pronouns but thought that it went about it the wrong way. Definitely not written by a trans or nonbinary person but points for trying, I suppose.

I'm trans and nonbinary and this book strongly reads like it was written by a cis person who hasn't really spent much time talking to trans folks. So much of it rang so false or just seemed totally confused (I don't think the author understands how gender-neutral pronouns work, like at all?). Please let us tell our own stories.

Such an important book that lets you into the life of a genderqueer teen and their girlfriend. Emotional, heartbreaking and realistic.

Coarse Language: Not too much- a couple s**t and a** and one broken off f word.

Sexual Content: Toni and their girlfriend have sex, this is both mentioned in reference and also in vague detail. Later in the book a girl and boy have sex, nothing too graphic.
