I wanted to rate this higher because it's such an interesting concept, but I can't in good faith, because the actual book is a total disappointment. It's essentialist, bi-phobic, and not even well-written (if I read “deeply” or “mal” one more time I was gonna throw something, and seriously, YA authors, stop trying to create your own slang – it didn't work for the Babysitters Club and it won't work for you). I wanted this book to be so much more than it was, but no one is really developed as a character (least of all the parents), and I didn't like any of the main characters enough to care what happened to them.
And for the record? 5'9” and 118 pounds is not “voluptuous” or whatever the narrator describes Ramie as. It is EMACIATED. It's an aside, but it bugged me for the rest of the book.
