    About “Jani Berghuis”

    1. Jani Berghuis

      I ve been writing practically since birth, hopelessly devoted to stories driven by badass protagonists and anything with a strong heart An unapologetic feminist, liberal, and LGBT rights activist, I spend an excess of my time arguing loudly about the importance of anything I care about, whether that ends up being the age old battle between Batman and Superman Superman all the way or the importance of non binary gender education.

    1. This is such an important book, showing what progress in the world, particularly in the LGBT community, is made of: by people like Ellis. Although in my opinion the ending is not exactly a possitive message because the ones who fight end up dead anyways, while the villains are still out there unharmed. I've read several YA novels with setting in rural America, all of which are depressing af and left me broken. Somehow I thought this time it'd be different. Well it is, but then again it's not


    2. Full disclosure: I was truly unprepared for how sad this book was.To the point of almost not giving it the 5 star rating that it deserved. But after I finished it, I picked up the pieces of my shattered heart and decided to reviewed for what it really is: a fantastic little gem of a book.Poignant, profound and with so much substance. The fact that this book seems to be so unknown to readers of the genre only proves to me how fickle the Gods of Literature must be.Ellis as a main protagonist is ju [...]


    3. I'm not sure now is the best time to write this review, as I only finished the book 20 minutes ago and I'm still trying to get my tears under control. I'm failing at that, by the way. I'm sobbing so hard I can barely breathe.This book is everything. It's sharp and cutting, it's warm and soft, it's hilarious and horrifying, it's uplifting and depressing. The language isn't just descriptive, it's powerful, expressive and evocative. The words filled me up with the full range of human emotion, then [...]


    4. I absolutely enjoyed reading this book and found it pretty intense at times. Homophobia and the fight against it is one of the major themes of the book, but there are other themes which are connected to being part of the lgbtq community in the southern US. Around Ellis, the protagonist of the story, a heartbreaking story unfolds. I love her strength and how she needs healing herself while she helps other members of the community. You’ll find a character that has a lot to deal with, suspense, n [...]
