    This is a really great sequel and it didn't totally disappoint. I will say that this does use the 'gay for you' trope, however Ben does consider bisexuality and concludes that the label isn't right for him. That's a real drawback for me as I was really hoping he would be bisexual, as that was what I...

    *Received from Edelweiss in return for an honest review*Mr. Konigsberg has done it again, I am even more in love with the story and characters than I was prior. Honestly Ben takes place a little while after Openly Straight with both characters still dealing with pain and heartbreak. Except for this ...

    3.75 stars? I think?? I have been looking forward to this book for a REALLY long time now. Well. For at least a year. I read Openly Straight at the beginning of last year and thoroughly enjoyed it with the exception of the AND THEN THE BOOK ENDS ending, which made me scream rude words about Bill Kon...

    It was really interesting reading this immediately after Ramona Blue, since the two had a lot in common in terms of the approach to sexual fluidity, but coming from opposite ends of the queer spectrum. Both kept the protagonist pretty (but not entirely) firmly in their original ID, preferring to foc...

    BR with Prag ♥ TW for: psychological abuse (not acknowledged with this particular name), homophobia. (maybe 4,5 stars? Idk, the rating system is messing with my brain)I really enjoyed this book, maybe even more than Openly Straight. It's just that Ben's voice resonated better with me and I was ...

    I loved this. Well worth the wait to read about the continuation of Ben and Rafe's story. Now I want to go back and read Openly Straight again. (Openly Straight is currently 99 cents for the ebook, and one of my favorite books, so go check it out if you haven't read it!)...

    NOPE.After almost an entire book of biphobic remarks, Konigsberg does NOT get to have a character casually drop “bisexual invisibility” into a conversation in the last ten pages of the story.Like, WHAT?!Yargh. Okay, let me begin again.I have been so excited for this book. I loved Ben when ...

    Bill Konigsberg sure knows how to write an important book. What he doesn’t know, is how to write a fun contemporary. Or maybe it’s just me. Don’t get me wrong—this could possibly be a five star read for you. I just didn’t connect to it at all.WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK (e...
